Tears - An Evening For Friends (Berlin, June 2018)
A lecture about the indistinguishability of fake tears and real tears, an ode to Lana Del Rey, a bourgeois salon with sparkling wine, a farewell ritual, a sentimental sermon.
A friend of mine told me the story of her first breakup. She was fourteen and lying under her blanket, talking to her first boyfriend on her first cell phone. She was talking very quietly, pressing her cellphone as close to her face as she could, so that her parents couldn’t hear her. During the breakup-conversation, she was crying so much that, due to the amount of tears that broke in her phone, her phone broke. She drowned it with her tears.
