Cry-Baby. How to Win Hearts and Influence People
@Perla-Mode message salon, Zurich, CH

Being interested in the circuit of emotions, the Bureau of Melodramatic Research recognizes the anti-hierarchical potential of cry-babies - weeping as a form of resistance, but also its manipulative purpose with the aim of producing consent. BMR proposes a new etiquette, the Cry-Baby Guide. This new guide turns to onion as a natural catalyst for the socially forbidden eruptions in the public space. The new skool of lachrymatory practice aims at breaking the alleged monopoly of emotional secretions and promotes reflex tears as a form of counter-crying, a protest which doesn’t end but start with tear gas.
