The video below, entitled “Babelian Performance,” is an adaptation of two texts that deal with the Tower of Babel. The texts are the English translation of Jacques Derrida’s “Des Tours de Babel” and Samuel Weber’s “Translatability II—Afterlife” (Derrida 2007, 191–225; Weber 2008, 79–94). I complete the 23-minute video soon after the second artistic part and it reflects the Babelian character of its last part.
