She entered the club on a Thursday afternoon. It was empty at the beginning but people started to show up, Someone talked about the Theory of the Non-Object, Other Guy was mentioning Surkow and non-linear warfare, and last Mallarmé was brought up by the person sitting on the corner next to the window. Time could always enter any conversation, same as Quantitative Easing could have parallel interpretations. Everybody seems to be very concerned about how this world develops and how we become old.
As it was later discovered, once the club had closed its doors Frau Hofstadter had written a report on it that day where she commented:
‘She’ was this guy working in the same building for a local newspaper in the advertising section—no idea how he had heard of this place. ‘Someone’ was a friend of mine, who I met in 2002, that although we kept in touch seeing each other every now and then, he had now become an artist and lives in Berlin. ‘Other Guy’ was a young man, who had been studying about Cybernetics and Eurythmy and who ‘Someone’ had brought along before meeting with this third person, to whom they where indirectly connected through business affairs. And that that person in the corner was actually an actor. And even though spam could be a central subject of study, spam or Freud where not invited to the club but both went. Finally ‘Everybody’ is me, questioning if all these thoughts are really part of this world or not.
