Penacho-Ritual is a homage to all repressed, transformed and lost perspectives of the different people of this world.

When the Mexican government demanded the restitution of the Penacho-Headdress, this failed due to the fear, that this could set a precedent, with the consequence that all other ancestral objects would have to be returned to their place of origin. In the frame of PENACHO-Ritual dead gods will come to live and the Wiener Weltmuseum will turn into a Mexica-Temple. The ritualized sacrifice of high-ranking representatives of the Museum is an attempt to restore the cosmic order.
