Ludwigshafen, Frauen und der erste Weltkrieg

2014 / 2 hours / live performance / Stadtmuseum Ludwigshafen, Ludwigshafen, DE

day-to-day life at the first world war
a roll jute
I’m cutting the jute
I’m needle on an old sewing machine
gunny sacks
consistent clatter
a moutain of sand
I’m shovelling the sand in the bags
the sand is crumpling
gunny sacks
I’m moving the bags
I’m hefting it at the exhibition of the war
I’m sweatting
it is arduous
gunny sacks
