this site-specific public action was made at one of the historic locations where Hitler addressed the Austrian people. by inviting people to paint their lips and kiss a stranger, we attempt to challenge the idea of the encounter with the other in a moment of intimacy. The performance took the form of a sound and visual installation where after kissing, people made an impression of their lips in a book. the kisses were then uploaded to a purpose built website where people could download the traces of their lips. This work was part of a series of performances that we also developed in Peckham, South London, UK and Vienna, Austria.
