PERFORMING THE PERFORMANCE "DREAM" BY YINGMEI DUAN BECAUSE THE CHINESE WOMAN COULD NOT GET A VISA TO SHOW HER WORK IN THE US BY HERSELF

Performance


The performer Yingmei Duan was invited to show her piece "Dream" in a group exhibition in PS1, New York.
But as a Chinese woman she could not get a visa to enter the USA and was therefore not able to take part in
the exhibition.

Doreen Uhlig performed the work Yingmei Duan wanted to show instead of realising the performance
HERE NOW ( Using a gun • I write into a wall • by handwriting • the words • here • and • now )
she devised for this exhibition.
