A la recherche du temps perdu
Performance mit / with Valie Djordjevic In the homonymous performance Marcel Proust’s novel “À la recherche du temps perdu” is first coded into zeros and ones and then decoded back into human language — processed from the analogue to the digital and back again. The zeros and ones are read by two persons alternately, interpreted by a third representing a CPU (Central Processing Unit) and stuck onto the wall panel by a fourth as Display. The performers play computer with the ASCII-version of this originally literary text.
