The Book of Blood

Notes

Leibniz, together with a host of guest artists, presents The Book of Blood, an ongoing performance and multi-performative experience that explores issues relating human rights and (dis)enfranchisement whilst aiming to facilitate the spectator’s active contribution in participation. Each visitor is invited to donate a drop of blood to be used as ink in the writing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights into a thick, leather-bound book. This video and photographs are taken from PSI 12, Queen Mary, 2006. Includes a performance leaflet/document.
