The Assembled


Yorgos Sapountzis’s performances oscillate between procession and gathering: wrapped in silver emergency blankets or armed with constructions made of aluminium rods and flapping fabric, he investigates the cultural heritage of a city. He counters the monumental aesthetic of the memorials with the fragile quality of his performances. In Frankfurt, he and “The Assembled“ explored the public space between the Römer and the Frankfurt Paulskirche.
