This work deals with the departmentstore as a scenic point for reflection on the history of former arcades in the city of Berlin. According to an ongoing artistic research on the figure of the flâneuse – this performance focuses on the beholder`s space.

Mills and Hannes Meyer are appearing in opposition to each other. The garment bags are embodying the imagined protagonists and are assimilating the imperative of entrepreneurship of cultural workers. Moving and freezed
