I would be very interested in joining your conversation, but I would be very
grateful if you could pass on to me previous conversations.
I just finished an 8 months research residency in Hamburg K3, where my topic of
research was participation throughout the 20th century. We were specifically

others. I also premièred a performance « Speaking about the ghost » 2 weeks ago
in Hamburg, related to this research.
