Deutschland Deutschland
22 minutes

video performance

‘Deutschland Deutschland’ [Germany Germany] is a Performance for video. The title is taken from the first verse of the former German anthem which is forbidden to sing since World War 2. It is connected with the forbidden Nazi salutation which I do and try to keep as long as possible. The struggle is a metaphor which offers a critical view on the past and the present of German history, but also points on Fascism mindsets all over the world. The video is underlined with a slowed down version of the original composition of the German anthem composed by Joseph Hayden.
