Dachshund U.N. - November 13 at Perth PICA
Dachshund U.N., a performance and art installation, continues its rounds around Australia, seen most recently here in Perth. This is a nice video which recaps the day's events by youtuber tokenskepticpodcast who notes:
A gathering of minds like no other! This is a short film I made of all the fine furry delegates from Perth, who came to the Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts in order to take part in Perth artist Bennett Miller's 'Dachshund U.N'. Dachshund U.N is both a large-scale architectural installation and a participatory performance work that examines the role of the United Nations as a risk management organisation. Bennett transformed the Perth Cultural Centre Amphitheatre into a replica of the former U.N office in Geneva, Switzerland. The structure played host over two Saturdays in November, with all the delegates played by local live dachshunds!
