DOCUMENTARY The lasting memories of the G20 summit in Hamburg are above all the pictures of destruction and escalating violence, which largely overshadowed the peaceful demonstrations. At the same time, protest performances went down very well as a new form of demonstration - like "1000 Gestalten [1000 Creatures]" in which artists with clay-painted faces wandered the streets like zombies, or the "megaphone choir" which drew attention by means of spoken art delivered via loudhailer. The Summit - Performing G20 gathers the most impressive moments, talks to those taking part and those affected and paints a complex picture of the complicated days of the summit.
