fragment 8 "we should learn to live more in stairwells, but how?" george perec
düsseldorf, september 2021
with mariana senne and fanti baum



stairs on sand
the statics endangered the cobbler with the square shoes kristin ross writes about wanted to sign his barricade
barricades as works of art that cut through the city
signed barricades
on the wasteland
found the first steps leading up the hill
suspects that the inhabitants of the temporary habitats on this site started them
reading the space and its facilities and possibilities
as a form of ecological thinking
studying the found unfinished construction of this perhaps third staircase
read and continued the work in stair construction
then improved
common work steps

balancing the weight in carrying the stone together
coordination of the steps
dragging stones over the area
of the material
asking for help
the request as a necessary communication
asking for things that are impossible alone
choreographies of the wood, the stones, the gravel
that require us together

during the requested assistance of a means of transport (for the stones), an eager
terrain-dweller almost falls and has to be rescued
he does not fall on the dead rat that the shopping cart hits
we do not sign the stairs
later others do it
how many stones moved, dragged and wood carried and gravel formed, dug
with spades, gloves and other stones
reorganization of the parts
