The Beggar's Diary, 30.09.2007. - Today is the day. Many, oh so many words have been used to speculate as to what would happen today, but, ironically, the day starts with a process of healing: an orthopaedist takes a look at Filch’s knee at the fyal*f.

The Beggar's Diary, 29.09.2007. - It's raining cats and dogs in Muenster and it doesn't look like it’s going to get better any time today. Filch reluctantly cancels the guided tour he has always wanted to lead, and the only thing to do now, he figures, is to sit and wait at the fyal, scoring as many free coffees as he can. There are quite a few visitors looking for him.

The Beggar's Diary, 28.09.2007 Dear Filch! We send you hearty greetings from Paris. At the moment we are drinking something on the Eiffel tower. With love, Uwe+Ricarda Filch has received postcards in the past, but this one is special because it was not delivered to him by his friends at the info point, but by the postman, who delivered it to the following address: Mr. Filch

The Beggar’s Diary, 27.09.2007.- Yesterday's Beggar's Evening surely inspired people to write scripts suggesting a proper ending of this opera. Allow us to name just a few: place Filch in Andreas Siekmann’s garbage press; subject him to "la petite mort" next to a single woman; lay him down on the floor and watch to see if the body decides to get up or not ...

We'll meet again, don't know where, don't know when, But I know we'll meet again, some sunny day. Keep smiling through, just like you always do, 'Til the blue skies drive the dark clouds far away. So will you please say hello to the folks that I know, Tell them I won't be long. They'll be happy to know that as you saw me go, I was singing this song.



The Beggar's Diary, 24.09.2007.- A wise man once said that when street cats feel their end is near, they leave their regular territory and lay down some place where they cannot be found. This is the third clue regarding his end. 1) Rijeka must come to him; 2) picture of Rijeka; and 3) death of a cat.

23.09.2007, The Beggar's Diary, five movements. 1. Yesterday's tune, played by Dave Brubeck, is still humming in his head. Rudolf and Eberhart, two documentary filmmakers, want to interview him and follow him around for an hour or two. Filch doesn't mind it this time. They have two questions for him: “What is your task within the exhibition?”

The Beggar's Diary, 22.09.2007 All by myself in the mornin' All by myself in the night I sit alone with a table and a chair So unhappy there playing solitaire All by myself I get lonely Watchin’ the clock on the shelf I'd love to rest my weary head on somebody's shoulder I hate to grow older all by myself

English synopsis, The Beggar's Diary, 20.09.07.- Today is the day of touring groups , each with its different attributes, like Indian tribes. There is the group of 15 teenagers, all of them carrying a red rose in their hand; 20 minutes later you see the group of girls with oversized sunglasses; then boys again, armed with slingshots this time.

English synopsis, The Beggar's Diary, 19.09.07.- Filch The Beggar knows that Constanze has not been guarding Kinoshita's work "Chinese Whispers" for a few days already, so he has no idea why he just received the letter from yesterday, but he understands now why the letter was dated "Today." He knows the messages from Constanze always have, at least, two meanings (remember the Gasoline days?).

Muenster Today Good morning, Mr. Filch, Today I have been assigned to keep watch over the "Chinese Whispers." There are not many visitors, and the few there are don’t seem to need any information I could give them. So I have decided to do my own "Chinese Whisper," to try to put some order in my thoughts and in the events of the last couple of weeks.

English synopsis, The Beggar's Diary, 17.09.07. - Yesterday was summer, and today is already autumn. In the course of his three months of existence, Filch had gotten used to these Mondays where nothing seems to happen. But there had never been a Monday as uneventful as this one. He has survived poverty, hunger, prosecution, conspiracy, disease; he has overcome it all, but boredom will kill him.

English synopsis, The Beggar's Diary, 16.09.07. - Today, there is place for only one idea in Filch's head: to meet Mr. Robert Wilson, and to use the influence of this immensely talented man to find a job with the Muenster theatre company, and thus –never truer words were spoken – to live beyond death as an artist in the minds of people.

English synopsis, The Beggar's Diary, 15.09.07. - Charles Filch has reached a point that many a mortal must reach: he knows his end is near, and so he has stopped worrying about the banal, the petty little miseries of the everyday, and has started concentrating on the things that really matter. So today, next to the usual coffee at the fyal, he has ordered a croissant for breakfast.

The Beggar's Diary, 13.09.2007 . – Filch, still thinking about the social security system in Scandinavia, decides to keep the 20 Euro Christine gave him. He hides it in a secret place, in case he might ever need it: "20 Euro: that's my social security." This might be the most sensible thing I’ve done to date, he thinks.

The Beggar's diary, 12.09.2007.- In the morning, Filch meets Sophie, the guardian angel at the Switch+ info point. She's leaving for Alicante next week; she’s taking some wool and she plans to knit all day long. That’s her dream for her holidays. How about taking with her the collective work "The Scarf," which no one has touched in ages. Yes, why not.

The Beggar's Diary, 11.09.2007.- Filch heard a story about Andreas, one of the characters in Valérie Jouve’s film. Andreas is the man who collects bottles all around the city so that he can trade them for money. Today Filch saw this man, looking through the garbage in silence.

The Beggar's Diary, 10.09.2007.- Filch finds on the street a chalk drawing, probably the work a child, as it is lying near a home full of toys in the garden. Filch likes the drawing, which reminds him of Picasso. "I hope I'm not offending anyone by thinking that.” Its drizzly and cold, so he heads to the fyal, and once there he doesn't feel much like leaving.

One of the highlights of the evening: Filch talks about his impossible future and the friction beween what he is and what they expect him to be as a sculpture. Or, in other words, about the differences between The Beggar and a Monolith with Rouded Edges Hovering Some Centimetres Above the Ground.



The Beggar's Diary, 09.09.2007.- Filch is late, terribly late, and everywhere in town there are people running. The people are running towards an imaginary goal: 42 km (the marathon). Filch had forgotten it, but, of course, today is Muenster Marathon. He sees a runner with the number 6347 on her chest! So there are at least 6.347 people running at this very moment!

The Beggar's Diary, 08.09.2007. – Filch is passing the Landesmuseum early in the morning when Christine Litz spots him and reminds him of the deal they made: he got to meet the Bundespräsident in exchange for going with her to meet an art collector next Sunday. By all means, dear Christine, that’s just the sort of people The Beggar is interested in right now.

English synopsis, The Beggar's Diary 07.09.07. - Pavarotti is dead. The newspaper headline reads: "Pavarotti is silenced." Filch wonders if one day the headlines will read: "Filch is sold." Yes, he must admit to himself that he hasn’t given up hope, yet.

English synopsis, The Beggar's Diary, 03.09.07. - Business is going from bad to worse, and—no use denying it—the reason for it is that people are no longer interested in Filch.

English synopsis, The Beggar's Diary, 16.08.07. - "A day full of surprises" would be an apt title for a day like today—if days had titles, that is.

But then a man walks in, looks around, and leaves.

English synopsis, The Beggar's Diary 12.08.07. - It’s Sunday morning, and Filch walks through a deserted and unbelievably quiet Muenster. The public transport is not running.

Dorthin, wo die Zukunft beginnt, und die Geheimnisse der Vergangenheit bewahrt und weitergegeben werden. Aber eins nach dem anderen.

English synopsis. The Beggar's Diary, 29.07.07. - Sunday begins, as usual, at the FYAL, where the waiter is kind enough to explain to a customer what FYAL* stands for. The waiter repeats the word "FUCK" several times, though Filch cannot tell if out of pleasure, or simply because the customer could not hear it, or understand what he said. http://beta.thebeggarsopera.org/node/68

English synopsis. The Beggar's Diary, 28.07.07. - Filch reads a newspaper article about "The Beggar" with a picture of him. The article is only three weeks old, but the picture doesn’t correspond to him any more.

English synopsis, The Beggar’s Diary 16.07.07.- Filch has 20 euro in his pocket. He seems to have no place left in his head but for the thought of what do with it. Maybe go to the bank and open an account with a 4,25% interest rate?

English synopsis, The Beggar's diary 14.07.2007.- It is now four weeks that Filch has been a citizen of Muenster, the city of the arts, the "public space sculpture" center of the world. Living in the middle of it for the last month has taught Filch a good deal about art.

The Beggar's diary, 13.07.2007.- As Filch walks the streets morosely, head down, his eyes fall on four golden pavement stones with names written on them. He reads about the people who lived in the house opposite the stones and who died after being deported to camps in 1939. Do people know about this?

The Beggar's diary, 12.07.2007.- Now Filch gets his coffee before even asking, they see him coming in and they start preparing it. Is this home, he wonders? A place where coffee is made for you without asking? “My Home is where My Coffee is”, should he sell this as a commercial ad?

The Beggar's diary 10.07.2007.- There are now two places where Filch can drink a free cup of coffee. This poses a dilemma, as he cannot be at two different spots at one and the same time, and he only drinks one cup of coffee a day. The demand to be at two places drinking coffee is more than he can supply.

The Beggar's diary 08.07.2007.- Filch takes a long morning walk and says hello to everyone he meets, like people do in the mountains. As agreed, he has his morning coffee at 11:00 and then sets up shop at the Spiekerhof, where the waiters of a restaurant stare at No. 06, discussing his presence … They seem not to remember him, even though he’s been around for a good three weeks now.

The Beggar's diary 07-07-2007. Scroll down for media (interview with the guardian of the Flower) Today, the number 7 is all around us. Filch heard a that lot of people are getting married today because of the special date: 07.07.2007, or 7-7-7 (as in the New York Times!). A holy number, 7. But Filch is known as 06.

English synopsis 06.07.07.- Filch walks into the city at around 14:00, and makes sure to pass by the Dom Square … you never know. After a brief stop at the Spiekerhof he returns to the Überwasser Kirche, where a guard gives him a little note, a riddle: “There was once a sculpture project. I wait for you there at 15:00". There are only 12 minutes left to solve the riddle. Thoughts rush again.

05.07.07, English synopsis There is no question about it: today has been a very special day for Filch. He could hardly fall asleep with thoughts crossing his head at the speed of light. As he opens his eyes, all he thinks about is how hard it will be to wait until 17:00, when he’s supposed to meet Constanze.

04.07.07. English synopsis: The day starts with Filch going to a bar where there is a bathtub in the restroom. He wants to take a bath and also pitch a business proposition to the owner: public baths in which people can take a bath while drinking coffee—there is money in this, he is sure. The owner rejects his proposal but offers him a coffee a day for free from now on.

English synopsis 03.07.2007 An eventful day is usually the eve of an uneventful one, and the contrary is true as well. Emotionally exhausted from yesterday, Filch is finally shown some compassion from the gods, who let go of some of their bounty.

Opening Day .- (für Deutsch siehe unten) In the next 120 days, from 10:00 to 20:00, I’ll be Filch, The Beggar. I ask myself how Brecht would have nicknamed Sculpture No. 6 of SPM07: the demander? the claimer? the requester? the pleader? I, personally, would have particularly liked “the petitioner”: the petitioner of recognition, of answers, of information, and, certainly, of money.

"The spectacle produces spectators and thus protects itself from being questioned; it induces passivity rather than action, contemplation rather than thinking, and precipitates the degradation of life into materialism ... in advanced societies, material survival is not an issue, except for those who are kept poor in order to represent poverty."

I have received today the Kultur Spiegel. What are the chances for socially or politically engaged art when one places Brecht's words next to a recipe for kokospudding? Do not misunderstand me, I think it is very honorable (certainly for me!) to place Dreigroschenoper next to Kokospudding, but, doesn't it say a lot about the nature of the "grand cultural event" today?



Can you imagine the character?

In a welfare state, and seen from the eyes of a public space passer-by, one wonders about the origins of beggary. In a welfare state, one wonders, beggary is not any more a profession as once it was, but a vocation. Is that possible? Would any one want to be a beggar if other options were available?
