47-year-old performance artist Danny Devos aka DDV performs 'He Just Wanted to Play in his Bath Tube and Put a Finger in his Ass' in Vilma Gold Gallery, Schlesische Straße 26, Kreuzberg, Berlin, Berlin, Germany.

During a live video-performance by artist Brock Enright the audience was encouraged to react to notes he wrote before a camera from his New York bathroom. He smeared ketchup all over himself and tried to provoke some violence from the audience. After a while I stepped in front of the camera and told him I wanted real blood. He kept provoking and wrote “I’m scared”. I took a shard of glass from the floor and cut my chest until blood streamed down, put my shirt back on and left.
