The subject of Jean-Baptiste’s monologue is love, reflections on the French conception of love and that of the ancients – Hadrian’s love for Antinous, the ideas about ideal love that are transmitted by French films and literary culture in general, and Marguerite Yourcenar’s transmission of those notions through her own intimate relationship with literature, with history as a materialof shifting properties, consciousnesses, points of convergence. Excerpted from an interview with Yourcenar from 1980, playing with the borrowing of a literary tradition, updating this interview into another context, drawing out the actor’s own relation both to inhabiting the current space and conditions of the city while reflecting Yourcenar’s timeless conceptions of real and fictional love and longing.

Dead Satellites is an expression defined by Shahram Entekhabi for a certain culture within the migrant scene. In an astro-scientific context, the term ‘dead satellites’ stands for satellites that are out of service, but still circling around the earth without destination. The title refers to those people, who left their home countries and practice certain cultural traditions in an exaggerated way. By this, the traditions lose their origins and are unveiled in a way of total hypertrophy. This exaggeration mixes up with a deep feeling of discomfort and mistrust against the ‘host country’. As result there are ‘dead satellites’, rootless, in two ways: they are without any context to their home countries and live in a partly self-decided, partly forced isolation additionally to their situation in the new country.
Further interracial tensions are stoking between the groups of migrants since the European enlargement.
The three parted video performance ‘dead satellites’ tells the story of a Muslim couple, dressed up in western clothes, who are filled with hate against the ‘white’ race in their environment. During the three chapters, ‘bint ‘amm’ (inbreed*), ‘Jungle Fever’ (after a film by Spike Lee, that deals of the love and compassion between the races) and ‘Familycide’ (an expression for a committed murder on relatives), the conflict potential between the partners gets worse as result of the Dead Satellites-situation. It evaluates into a bitter battle.
*a wide spread practice in the orient
