In 2009, for example, the performance was as follows: At the manifest point MAKE RATIONAL EMOTIONAL, city maps from the region are changed through emotional performative actions, comparable to the working method of the artist Kühne they visited. At the manifest point TRANSFORM THINGS, according to the working method of the artist Buck, things found on the street are transformed into small sculptures. In MAKE FICTION, fictional stories are conceived based on the fantastic paintings of painter Barbara Thiele and recorded as radio plays. Finally, back in Braunschweig, the resulting artworks are exhibited at the Allgemeiner Konsumverein and opened with a spontaneous vernissage.
katze und krieg develop the performance each year, always with a different focus of learning, visiting other artists, and a different manifesto.
