Aug.2012,"Washing Out my Memories with Vltava Water","(A) VOID GALLERY" on the riverbank of the Vltava river in Prague, Czech

Recently I wrote an autobiographical novel which was published in Prague, describing my memories from the Czech underground's "Second Culture" movement which I was part of.

Values of third movement were absolutely incompatible with the values of contemporary capitalistic society. Therefore I washed the text of his book with the contemporary water of the Vltava river in order to alter the meaning of the language and to "conform" to the

contemporary social consensus (totalitarian capitalism). At the end of this "amnesia conversion" Ilet his book to float on the river, hopefully to someday join the ocean

of all forgotten memories...

Here you can download the chapter from a book published in Poland describing this performance:!fkgcG5MX2/milan-kohout-politics-of-erasure-pdf
