Photo Op at the Brandenburg Tor
I have no excuse whatsoever for posting this picture, except that it shows me, caught in the act of delivering my lecture ‘Welcome to the Labyrinth: Some Further Thoughts on Requiem for the Network’ at the Akademie der Künste last Saturday night, and the Brandenburg Tor – and all in the one shot too.
It also brings back many happy memories of the evening – including the one of Heinrich Dubel of the Erratik Institute lighting fire crackers and throwing them off the Akademie balcony onto the square below to see whether the police would react (they didn’t). My thanks to everyone who showed up and took part in the event so enthusiastically – and many thanks indeed to Lillevan for taking such an evocative photograph. Every tourist should look like this.
