Product Description

For 14 nights, 7th 20th of April 2003, the artist sat in a soundproofed one-way mirrored glass room from 7 to 11 pm drinking beer, smoking cigarettes and speaking. His main focus were his undergraduate years (between 1990 and 1995) at the American University in Cairo (AUC), which he entered when he was 15 and graduated from when he was 20. All 56 hours of this performative action were documented on a digital video camera. The book holds a transcription of every legible word uttered during these hours.
