Suicide Mistaken for Art Performance

BERLIN (Reuters) – Visitors to a off-beat Berlin arts center thought a dead
woman on the ground was a performance art act rather than a suicide, police said
on Thursday.

“A group of visitors to the center at first thought the body lying on the ground
at the art center was part of an art performance,” said police spokeswoman Christine
Rother. “It took a while before anyone realized it was not an act but a suicide.”

I would like to say something uplifting here, but can’t think of a redeeming thing.

However, Kafka’s
The Hunger Artist
comes to mind. Complete text here. Twisted Spoon Press has some interesting things to say about K’s final volume with its titular piece.
