“Julian Meding is marking in his lascivious, almost naked and body conscious performance an antipole to the normed world of laws. He's an enfant terrible and an outlaw. (...) With these ambivalences he embodies the right to otherness.”

"Das Grundgesetz/The Basic Law of Germany" is a mix of stand-up-show, live art and conceptual electropop concert. Four performer confront themselves in four solos with the German constitution. What is the relation between their bodies and the law? What laws are present when the performers speak to the audience? What happens if they consider their biographies through the frame of law?
