On one of the most famous streets of Berlin, Oranienstrasse, in the heart of Kreuzberg, a performance in a glass-walled container has been taking place. In collaboration with Hebbel am Ufer, artist Dries Verhoeven is performing his piece Wanna Play? by living in the container. In this period of fifteen days the artist is communicating with the outside world by chatting via Grindr − a dating application for gay and bisexuals − to ask questions on life. In an era where notions of  private and public are blurred, observing the acts of a man in a glass container; wondering what he is doing and witnessing his private conversations with others, inevitably, arouses questions.
