WALK WITH MARIA MITSOPOULOU: MALEFICHORUS. Berlin 30 June 2013. Picture Art & Tours.
“A geolocated audiovisual performance on marches, walks, and tours. The Malleus Maleficarum (1487) asserted that three elements are necessary for witchcraft: the evil intentioned witch (xxx), the help of the Devils (community), and the Permission of God (favorable/manipulated sociopolitical conditions or be ready for unexpected factors). I read the caliban and the witch from Silvia Federici, I navigate on the net: witches in Germany, I follow the link into witch trials. The Würzburg trial. The Malefizhaus of Bamberg. These 2 cities sound familiar to me… From Würzburg to Berlin, we will rise up. We will not reach Oranienplatz tent action camp, there you should go alone, but we will Kiss in Taksim square, dialogue with J. Butler, meet under a sea clock, firmly hold a red umbrella, follow actual witch hunting reports, think on sacred ways of traveling while being between bodies that act together. A tour on temporal live architectures of resistance in 5 parts, meaning 260 meters prolonged in time and relocated in space.” Maria Mitsopoulou.
