D plus one, “the random movement of particles suspended in a fluid” is a lecture performance with Fanny Zaman. What do we observe? The setting is the Ethiopian Commodity Exchange (ECX) in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia. ECX is the current centre of control of the newly-installed Ethiopian market system. Ethiopia today ranks number 5 in the world list of emerging countries by producing primary physical goods (commodities). 

In Ethiopia we started a series of observations, encounters and dialogues with people connected in some way or another with the new founded ECX and the Ethiopian economy. We were looking for relations between macro statements (about a country, a population, a group) and micro experience. The Lecture Performance traverses five fragments. They are presented in a European context. The presentation challenges our self-awareness and our (in)capacity to critically evaluate the things we perceive.
