Still under my Skin

Lecture/​paper (in English)

25 years on, this paper looks back on the issues surrounding Kölnisch Wasser, Ury’s video-perfor­mance. 7 docu­mented perfor­mances of a series, filmed from 1993 – 97, of Tanya Ury receiving a 4711 number tattoo (in 1993) and chore­o­graphed perfor­mances, were edited together to form a split-screen video in 2003. Kölnisch Wasser was a reflec­tion on media repre­sen­ta­tion of people’s inhu­manity towards each other and public compla­cency in the face of geno­cide that was happening some­where else.
