dear dictator *ongoing research with Noé Oliva Rodríguez 2017
Durational performance, 2017 With Noé Oliva Rodríguez, a friend
An agreement is made by which a friend and I will take decisions for one another for a few hours every day. We also ask each other to decide on what we think will be the most important decisions to make in the coming month.
We make those decisions for each other in this non hierarchical, mutual, consented, unimposed and reversible arrangement - as if no other laws, rules or regulations existed, based on the mutual recognition, trust and care we have for each other.
Also: Visitors to Come Together (Frascati, Amsterdam, 2017) are invited to take decisions for each other in pairs for the duration of the evening. the arrangement of pairs could also be transformed into a chain instead, so that I could take a decision for someone else, then that person for someone else, and so on and on.
