Fat people regularly experience stigma and discrimination when visiting medical facilities. In her lecture performance, Veronika Merklein presents collected stories of fat people in a suffocatingly humorous way.
The performance is adapted to a lecture format with Powerpoint presentation. The video is designed as a split screen and is intended to be shown on two screens in exhibition format.
