synopsis
Since 2017 the two giant panda bears Meng Meng and Jiao Qing have been hired out to the Berlin Zoo from China. Unfortunately for the Zoo, this profit seeking attraction did not work – in fact, it worked backwards. Meng Meng, the female panda will only walk backwards. Kerstin Honeit’s video aligns Meng Meng’s protest with other performances of protesting bodies using movement in public space to address grievances
