i remember her//a dweller of the suburbs//looks at the moon//in the first light of dawn//through the rectangle of a window//asked: which side?//she looks at me//sticks her fingers in her mouth//then god//now victim//but only for one day


file 13 is a fictional attempt to collect information on persons who got entangled in former east german politics.
it is a recollection of imaginary scenes filed by the stasi which would present a whole spectrum of a particular citizen, then taken off the shelves by those who search for the deeper structure of their pasts, one innocent, one not.

file13 was shown as a text installation @ dartington college of arts, devon, england, 2000.
