Anarchiv #1: I am not a zombie
Performance by deufert+plischke, Jeroen Peeters and Marcus Steinweg, 2009

In the first installment of the Anarchiv series, Jeroen Peeters collaborated with Kattrin Deufert and Thomas Plischke on their archive. On stage they were joined by philosopher Marcus Steinweg, who each time gave a different lecture halfway the performance. Anarchiv #1: I’m not a zombie is a journey through the unruly landscape of one’s own archive, scattered with illegible scraps, defunct videotapes, fading memories, marks and tattoos covering the body. Listening closely, one can still hear subtle mutterings from the twilight zone of the past, haunting the present: “Do you exchange blood for language?”, “Clothes make the man”, “Ça a toujours recommencé” or “I am not a zombie!”.
