52-year-old Performance artist Danny Devos aka DDV performs 'Dort oder Hier / Hommage aan Bernd Lohaus' in M_hka, Leuvenstraat 32, Antwerpen, Antwerpen, Belgium.

During a memorial event for artist Bernd Lohaus I reconstructed one of his works. I blocked the doorway between the cafetaria, where the event took place, and the museum with strips of tape. Nobody could pass through without destroying the work. On the floor I wrote: "Dort (das Museum) | Hier (die Kunstler) Warum? Bernd, der Kampf geht weiter."
