Christopher Wessels: Liturgy for the converted II
Performance lecture
Friday 21.9. at 19:00
Viinatehdas, Manilla, Itäinen Rantakatu 64

Christopher Wessel’s current practice is looking at methods and technologies that can be employed in the advancement of miracles. How we can alter the perception of miracles as an individualistic practice? In this iteration or celebration of love  Wessels uses the form of the Liturgy/sermon to explore miracles, decoloniality and the Molotov cocktail.
