Cannon Fodder

KatlZ, Riga/Latvia
Performance | In Russian, Latvian and English with German and English subtitles | 37 min

Today we live in a world where any of us can become “cannon fodder.”
And in fact, some of us have already become it. And it’s not as if it was somehow different before.
No, it was about the same. But it is only now that we have fully—and irrevocably—grasped this.
The entropy that haunts us and is part of us is inevitable. It is a law of physics.
It is unconditional. Nonetheless, can we overcome this law, can we inhale and exhale,
can we hear the sound of the wind following our breath?
Can we reduce the amount of entropy in this world?
Perhaps not. But we must. Stop being cannon fodder.
