VIDEOS MADE WITH LENIN:
V. I. Lenin, Collected Works, (Russian Edition) 1962, 2007
5 min. video
In the European and Russian tradition of book destructions, I am kicking a Russian edition of Lenins collected works accross the Red Square towards the Lenin Mausoleuml, where he still is for view almost daily until 1 pm. This work landed me in the hand and then in the car of the police. I was accused of Holigansim, an accusation that was "forgiven" after a payment of about 150 dollars - so to say, my most expensive taxi ride in Moscow.
Reading Lenin - reading seminars
these reading seminars consist of reading Lenin. Reading sessions are planed in several European cities including at Cabaret Voltaire, Spiegelgasse, Zürich, the former address of Lenin himself during World War I. One day will also be helt at the top of a Swiss mountain which Lenin visited during his stay. (February 2006, with the help of Adrian Notz and organized by Susanne Neubauer). So far scessions include New York, Baltimore and coming soon: Stuttgart and Warsow (in former soviet style government palace) and MOSCOW.

in the meantime, we are tryting to illustrate this dramatic, could have history-changed-bike-ride by a paper cut animation film - a technique not necessarily at the forefront of contemporary animation. Lenin almost lost his eye in Geneva, in october of 1903. at the congress of "The liga of Russian Revolutionary Social Democracy" (26 - 30th October 1903) Lenin was wearing a eye patch - like blind people do. (in that specific congress he was defeated by an opposing group within the party- the menscheviks versus the bolsheviks) >> facit: shit happens even to Lenin.
A RE-ENACTMENT IN GENEVA IS PLANNED BUT NOT YET SCHEDULED (by me.. - crashing into a tram)
