On the Beach
2012 – 12:15 min, HD Video
Like actors on a stage people appear in their (bathing) costumes on the beach of the Baltic sea in Germany, accompanied by heavy rolling thunder and a dramatic change of light. This scenery looks somehow faked or simulated, as staged on a movie-set, illuminated by studio floodlights. And finally Richard Wagner’s overture of „Tannhäuser“ rings out of a raspy radio. Is this a happy end?
