Caesarean Section
The birth of the alphabet.

Caesarean Section begins with the act of lying down, here motivated by the birth referred to in the title. The Caesarian section leads through a screen, from behind which streams a sack full of letters. This is the well-known alphabet soup of our childhood, which attempted to satisfy didactic requirements in two ways, by combining soup consumption with the acquisition of writing knowledge. Caesarean Section ends with a hand scattering the horde of letters over a table. Using a pair of tweezers, a hand picks out the letters of the alphabet from the muddled pile and places them in a row.

(Mara Mattuschka)
