Der Hase hat keine Nationalität

On the dance floor in Berlin, someone yelled, “Woher kommst du?” and the Rabbit replied, “Der Hase hat keine Nationalität,” which translates to “The Rabbit has no Nationality.”

It began as an experiment—to walk out of the apartment into the cold, Berlin winter morning with rabbit ears on. All sorts of reactions from delight to disdain were observed as Der Hase was riding public transportation and walking through the streets and museums. Later, der Hase performed Fake Healings at Adrian Arias’ Illusion 8, and also conducted a guided meditation, a rebirth for Homo sapiens to be in touch with their own animal nature, free of nationality.
