What a beautiful «Art dialogue» of the Foundation Beyeler. Hans Ulrich Obrist directly from London, due to the associated traffic problems, too late, which is why the artist Douglas Gordon invited replace public bath on the podium and make their short-term social seemingly absurd dialogue.

When the challenge audience – originally scheduled for the end of the evening was not observed in all cases – beginning of the problem, rather than as usual, at the end of the event. The basic feeling dadaeske seems even now, by the public, because the first question is that you can easily have a response from Douglas Gordon ironic, but came back. «I’m the best political bees?» «No, bees can not pull so easily.» And before the audience has been able to explain what this sentence misunderstanding we finally managed to find a way to overcome hatred. Violence then laughed, not to mention the name, word and gesture of bad habits – like some other artists – turning Nazi greeting into absurdity good movie!

And now, simulation based on the social networking pioneer: tattoos. Old «show who you are – and wear» memory shirt. In this context, long no longer apply. This is quite uncomfortable to use and a «slap in the face» registry is now completed by a qualified tatto studios: personal conviction, a special word of perseverance or sometimes just a shopping list will be clearly visible and indelible stripes. When the surface of the skin, Douglas Gordon, which means «do so forever
