HORST
2021

Searching for a figure that could guide even the most passionate meat eaters into a more environmentally friendly eating behaviour,

I created Horst. My male, right wing, barbecue fanatic alter ego.

 

Horst and I went on a journey together exploring our reasons for loving meat so much and our identity attached to it. Our research led us to investigate the influence of mandatory military service onto German society and hegemonic masculine identity.

 

We made a sculpture expressing our love for chicks and meat, a corset to discipline our insecurities and a video reflecting on narratives that shape our world view and acceptance of violence.

We also made a cooking show and a performance where we fucked our chicken.
