The Diagonale’20 was cancelled due to official measures to contain the spread of COVID-19.
A stuffed doll of a German Pope is attached to a huge globe, which spins to the music of Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Erbarme dich, mein Gott”—first in the right direction, then the wrong. The world oscillates to a stillstand. The faded writing in the ocean can be read again and again: “STOP POLLUTING ME.” The world, it’s not going to recover. The music breaks off.
