Live Performance by Thomas Geiger - Peeing in public
ART FUNDAMENTS has the pleasure to invite you to a live performance by Thomas Geiger, which will take place on November 24 at 09:30 on the Agora Lombard Odier, next to the Rolex Learning Center.
Peeing in Public
The performance Peeing in Public reflects on the need of peeing and the precarious situations that occur when no toilet is around and we are forced to improvise in public. The question of when, where and how to pee has been a preoccupation for all of us and, most importantly, since long ago. Together with his invited guests Rembrandt van Rijn, Samantha Fountain, George Jennings, Brae Carns, Ira Gessel, David Busch, Greg Kotis, Xi Jinping, and Emperor Vespasian, Thomas Geiger roams through the centuries and elaborates on the economical, (gender-)political, technological, and sexual dimensions of peeing in public.
