How to Explain Performance Art to My 12-Year-Old Daughter, with Clara Echenberg-Worsnip

Referencing Joseph Beuys’ 1965 performance How to explain pictures to a dead hare, mother and daughter embraced the intricacies of understanding art. We covered each other’s face and head with honey followed by gold leaf while a projection of sentences described the Beuys piece on the wall behind us. The text was purposefully contradictory in its attempt to explain the sensorial possibilities of human nature through rational/theoretical concepts.
