She She Pop & their Fathers


Belated Preparations for a New Generation Based on Lear

Part of "Shame, Shame, Shame! 25 Years of She She Pop"

She She Pop goes to work on the dramatic canon: In the first scene of Shakespeare's "King Lear", the old man makes an attempt to leave his kingdom to his three daughters and thereby to agree on his retirement arrangement - a plan that fails violently. Small wonder, as out of all the barter deals we have ever been involved in, the one between the generations is the most complicated and obscure one. Value and countervalue (i.e. money and love) are always veiled, nobody ever officially agreed on terms of this exchange. This is the case for almost all agreements between generations: they are foul. They never happened. They do not exist. The space that is to be cleared out is brimful with dates and details, jewellery and family trees, legal successions, hereditary diseases, loving vows, home care plans, gas receipts, and a sense of guilt – all of them subjects of public negotiations between daughters and their fathers.
