RIBBON CUTTING CEREMONY:
GRAND OPENING OF “THE END OF LIFE”
LOCATION: BERLIN ALEXANDERPLATZ
Near the Metro M5 Bombadier Flexity Tram Stop
DATE: TUESDAY, MAY 14
TIME: 7 PM
Three Rooms Press leads a group of people on a walk through Berlin Alexanderplatz station. After exactly fifteen minutes, a ribbon will be extended across the path of the group, and a banner will be erected which says “End of Life: Grand Opening” (bilingual signage). The “owner” (Peter Carlaftes) will announce that it is time for the grand opening of his new business venture “The End of Life.” Mistress of ceremonies Kat Georges will hand out disposable cameras and will stand with the “owner” for cheesy photos in front of the ribbon and banner. Then, using an oversized pair of scissors, he will cut the ribbon and allow people to enter the end of life. Once they pass by the cut ribbon, they must “die” by laying on the ground. The last person to pass through the cut ribbon will be the “owner”. The mistress of ceremonies will invite those who have not passed through the ribbon to take photos until she yells “Cut,” at which time all those who have entered The End of Life will be permitted to rise from the “dead” and leave.
