Consumer Parade
The Strong Consumer
Sat, May 31, 2008 3 pm CEST, Performance

In May, Senge takes a sculpture representing the strong consumer through the streets of Karlsruhe and carries on a discussion with its citizens, who are meant to formulate their opinions on posters. These posters will be part of a large consumer parade that will proceed through the historical center of Karlsruhe on 31 May. Led by donkeys and grouped around seven of the artist’s sculptures, which stand for different types of consumers, the parade – during peak shopping hours – should make a larger public aware of the determining position of consumerism. The parade is further enhanced by music specially composed by Carl Friedrich Oesterheldt and interventions by performance artists Eva Rostfrei and Bazon Brock.
