This performance deals with the department store as a scenic point for reflection on the history of former arcades in the city of Berlin. According to Reuters research on the figure of the flâneuse (female urban stroller) this installation adresses the observer`s space. The whole performance is structured as economic sale steps and oscillates between a sales pitch and a more narrative lecture. In a textmontage, that involves fragments by the author Margarete Böhme, the sociologist Charles Wright Mills and the urbanist and architect Hannes Meyer different notions of a commodified urban space are appearing in opposition to each other. The garmentbag- sculptures are referring to the imagined protagonists and are part of the projection, which shows subtile movements as well as freezed images, collected through several voyages and derives by raising the question what would a mobilized panoramatic gaze be today?
