You Do Not Know What You Are Talking About #mtaa
a performative lecture controlled by the audience and Internet via Twitter


We, like you, have often wished while listening to a lecture, panel, speech or newscast to stand up and tell the speaker, "You do not know what you are talking about!"

The artists sit behind a desk with two laptops and two microphones before them. Behind them a projection screen displays the text "#mtaa" and a timer.

They announce the title of the performance, "You Do Not Know What You Are Talking About," and explain that for the duration of the performance, they will read any, only and all text sent to Twitter with the hash tag "#mtaa."

The audience is invited to start twittering.

MTAA need your tweets!
We'll be doing the two, 10-minute performances of You Do Not Know What You Are Talking About at approximately 2:45PM Eastern Time on Saturday October 2nd and 3:45PM Eastern Time on Sunday October 3rd. Please tweet with the hash tag #mtaa and your tweets will be included in the performance.
