Typically "Berlin style" is... #2. - Two modern Marina and Ulay

Many of you liked a lot the katana lady, as an example of the very special atmosphere one can experience in Berlin.

Another example of what's typically "Berlin style"?

Last Sunday while walking in Kreuzberg, after a big storm, I stumbled upon two young street performers, dressed up like for a very formal wedding with 35 degrees Celsius and people in t-shirts around them sweating for the big heat.
The young "couple" was busy fighting and running and dancing and laughing together, while interacting with each other thanks to a huge grey mattress, in a fascinating art performance about love and other disasters that reminded me of the notorious  'Relation in Space'.

[The naked truth about love, relationships, pain,
broken hearts, emotional struggles and so on...
Relation in Space (1975)
by Marina Abramović & Ulay]

As if this would be the most normal thing to accidentally see, on a lazy Sunday afternoon. And in Berlin, it is. 

This one is for Michael.
