Hamza Badran: measurements. The Rhine

Corona Kino

In measurements. The Rhine, four people on the bank of the Rhine in Basel measure the distance between them one after the other and in doing so transform the current rule of two meters of physical distancing into a serial performative gesture. Beyond referencing the Covid-19 pandemic, Hamza Badran’s contribution raises the question of how, as a legal guideline imposed by the state, physically distancing is transgressed, and what risks or consequences this entails.
