The performative commitment of Prinz Gholam is a long-term practice of embedding appropriated and internalized embodiments in our world. In raw urban surroundings, they explore a spatial and contextual enlargement, conditioning a change in their interpretation of the accumulated visual material. The weathered nineteenth-century epitaphs and inclined grave steles at Lutherplatz difficultly still channel their perception to a once existing neo-gothic and romantic site. In the context of this historical backdrop, Prinz Gholam’s contemporary bodies perform a corporeal image repertory and lay bare numerable degrees of behavior manifested by them as well as by those coincidentally and deliberately cohabiting this urban environment.
