Probable title: zero probability

Probable title: zero probability is a lecture-performance about an event that is absolutely not possible. It starts with a simple question about ‘probability’ that turned quickly into uneasy matters, which put Steyerl and Mroué in confrontation with the space of the zero probability where everything is possible but can’t be accounted for.

Trying to enter into this space, Steyerl and Mroué develop a narrative about probability in art, mathematics, physics, and death. They try to calculate such a space where it is possible to be 100% alive and 100% dead. But can one explain how 200% percent probability fits into 100%?

Steyerl finds herself entangled within quantum superposition, while Mroué goes to his father asking him for private lessons in mathematics. They both get lost within a cut in a cinematic edit.
