PURGE is the world's most brutal game of friendship maintenance. 7-10 July, Brian Lobel invited strangers in a cafe to decide the fate of each of his 1400 facebook friends. He discussed each person for 1 minute, and inside that minute, he described his relationship with the facebook friend, defended having them, and then a three person panel chose to keep or delete. The show ran at four cafes in London and on this video stream. For more information, www.blobelwarming.com/purge.html
Purge will be repeated at the ANTI Festival of Contemporary Art in Kuopio, Finland 27 September - 1 October, 2011, for the second and final time.
