This publication follows the representation of Switzerland at the Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space 2011 by Guy Meldem, Sami Benhadj and Tarik Hayward. This book presents itself as an independent work of art that creates a setting which allows viewers to project general associations and their personal memories. It also reproduces black-and-white photographs that were shown in the Prague exhibition.

Two authors were invited to reflect on the performance for this publication. Critic Yann Chateigné Tytelman and philosopher Samuel Dubosson reflect on the work. Commissioned by Anna Niederhauser.
