This performance using digital technology and internet (skype) is exploring various aspects of Swiss involvement in colonial history and the current discourse about cultural difference in Switzerland. I impersonate various figures of Swiss popular culture and colonial history by wearing masks: Heidi, the folk singer Mani Matter, the comedian Victor Giaccobo, African sculptures of public collections in Zurich and Basel and last but not least Alpine carneval masks. Video-interviews with „indigenous“ Swiss, one of them of Indian origin, links to youtube clips or the sharing of image and audio material are integral parts of the performance.
