After a short introduction by archivist Dieter Studer into the Phonogrammarchiv, and its responsabilities, such as the collecting, documenting, analysing and publishing of sound recordings in all the swiss dialects in the four languages of the Switzerland, Stella Glitter, artist and musician, living in Zürich will re-interpret a model text, out of an issue of Der sprechende Atlas» published in 1952. The author and journalist Martin Büsser analyses in a lecturedifferent movements in punk and their relation to normative gender roles historically, and talks about the Emo-movement, its playing with androgynity and the many homophobic reactions towards it by other youth cultures. Following the lecture the performance «I'm in love with your brother» by the duo Krokodilstränensirup. They describe their performance: «An expensive instrument, copied, using paper, grains and dust. The duo Krokodilstränensirup moves, jammed, along the archive racks. The air is moved and moved to another place. A new scent forms. Pass this on.»
