2007, 5 min, color, sound
In the European and Russian tradition of book destructions, I am kicking a Russian edition of Lenins collected works accross the Red Square towards the Lenin Mausoleuml, where he still is for view almost daily until 1 pm. This work landed me in the hand and then in the car of the police. I was accused of Holigansim, an accusation that was "forgiven" after a payment of about 150 dollars - so to say, my most expensive taxi ride in Moscow.
