A story in twelve chapters
Every month Beatrice Jugert hoisted two new flags on the former GDR flagpoles that stand in front of the General Public project space. The flag-raising rituals dealt with elemental concepts, such as "ideal" or "illusion". The artist invited a range of different musicians to participate in developing suitable hymns, which included jodeling, morse codes etc.The stagings delineate questions of affinity and exclusion, covering a scope of emotions ranging from sereneness to somber apocalyptic sentiment. General Public was founded in Fall 2005 and is run by a group of cultural workers.
