About

Dichtung und Wahrheit contains collected pieces from publicity films with a common element: they show actors before they start and begin to play what they are directed to represent. Repeated ready made takes create cycles of symbolic significance and glorified glimpses of the contemporary human condition: the beauty from a hair conditioner, courting and insemination by chocolate feeding, labourless birth onto a varnished floor, animal and inanimate companions. It was my aim not to shape the found material perfectly into an unambiguous message but to preserve the full richness of archealogical information. My point of view has changed from the contemporary artists into an observer looking into the distant past.
