Ed Atkins

“Second Person”

Performance, 18.–20.11.2016, in English

Second person. A phrase to conjure the other in relation to oneself. To describe the grammar of direct address. To inaugurate the secretion of hegemony in the foundations of language, communication. You, my love. You, stranger. To speak of yourself is to speak of others. On the three evenings of “Schule der Distanz”, Ed Atkins will address You, the second person.
