White Trash DJ party tonight

I'm performing as a rice shaman -- together with my 15 year-old nephew Robbie, in his performance art debut! -- over the weekend at Bridge Berlin Verge 08, one of the three big art fairs currently showing in the city (the others are ArtForum Berlin and Preview at Tempelhof Airport).

It's all happening between tonight and Sunday at Old Town Apartments, Schonhauser Allee 5, Mitte. Tonight I'm DJing at the opening party in the Hindemuth Suite (right before Jason Forrest / Donna Summer; my set starts at 7pm, his at 8pm, entry is €5), then from Friday to Sunday I'm occupying an apartment in the building, praising and blaming rice (and praising visitors) in White Trash: The Rice Experiment, a continuous performance with Robbie. There's more description of what the performance is about in Ask the rice and White Trash and the Munchausen Docent.

At 5pm on Sunday there'll be a Q&A session and Sake Toast in which Robbie and I will announce whether praising and blaming the two pots of rice has had any appreciable effect on the food's condition. Apart from us, there are 20 galleries and artist projects in the building, so come along between midday and 6pm on Friday, Saturday or Sunday and see us talking to plants.

Hm, I'm going to arrive at Schönefeld airport tomorrow night at about 23.30. Do you know whether visiting the ArtFair that late would work out (and be worth the trip to Mitte)? I'll be out of Berlin again with the morning train, so I can't just watch you and your nephew insult (and praise) rice on Saturday.

Oh, nothing will be going on at the fair that late at night. It stops at 8pm, I think.

He has your eyes Nick.

I wish I could attend, it sounds truly captivating.

I always wonder about your own experience of all these things you partake in, do you get nervous, or is it all old hat to a seasoned pro such as yourself....this performance malarky i mean.

Re: He has your eyes Nick.

And that should of course be "He has your eye Nick".

It puts the "I got your nose" game into a new perspective.

Is that the same Dr Motte who said, ""Jews should stop moaning about German history."? He's a right cad, that Dr Motte.

On a tangent I was astonished to read the other day that Japan still had the death sentence.

It was in an Amnesty report that made the news over here in the UK.

I don't suppose you can blame the rice for that.

I've got to see this. Will you still be abusing the rice around four on Sunday?

Yes, and that's a good time to come because at 5 we announce the results and there's free sake!

Great! Your first post about the performance made me laugh. It's nice to be able to associate the area around White Trash Fast Food with something other than the shop-window full of porcelain pigs and, well, White Trash Fast Food.
