The Lecture Room Intervention

Performance
Concept

Kaspale is a character I have devised to intervene in spaces charged with colonial histories/activities. The Kaspale’s are generally playful tricksters who engage themselves in social and satire. They have the task and ability to call out authority when needed. They speak up when others can’t. Kaspale in the Lecture Room was performed in the MARKK Museums Lecture rooms, the site where first lessons on ethnography and race classification took place in the early 1900s. Kaspale intervenes by laying about, waiting, walking on top of the rails and tables, hopping about the basement corridors where the first practical lessons of race classification took place.
