EUROPEANA

durational performance

A human being will be reading the entire history of 20th-century Europe. The background music consists of 100 tracks – one for each year of the 20th century. A software will help translate the text live into binary code, a hypothetically universal language. The audio and its translation are recorded onto a device that will be stored in a time capsule on the performance venue. Were this recording to be found in a post-human future, we believe Europeana – A Brief History of The 20th Century is the most suitable book to describe our species at the dawn of the third millennium.

duration of listening varies, audience can come and go as they please
