Performative actions in public space

BOUNCING JUMPING is a performative action that celebrates the absurdity of the pursuit of happiness and questions its dictatorship by taking the common saying literally:

“jumping for joy” and pushing it to exhaustion. In a society where we are not supposed to be unhappy, we take the liberty to fail with ease at the dogma

of happiness. BOUNCING JUMPING has already been shown at Kultursommer 2021 and is the first part of Luigi Guerrieri’s new work. During his residency in July 2022 to the 2nd part GROUNDING, Luigi Guerrieri will practice regularly on the LANDBAHN BOUNCING JUMPING.

Pedestrians and neighbors are invited to watch, listen from the window, or even jump along.
