The complex title of Thomas Zipp’s proposal for his project in the Palazzo Rossini, touches upon two levels of meaning. On the one hand, he refers to the lyrics of ‘The Width of a Circle’ from 1970 by the English musician, David Bowie; on the other, to the phenomenon of research onto hysteria. Bowie, himself, referred in his lyrics to various parables and themes in Friedrich Nietzsche’s Thus Spoke Zarathustra, whereby he was mainly interested in his sexual relationship with his ‘Devil’, drugs.
