video projection of thank you, danke, duration: 5’

The epigram “Don’t shit where you eat” and the video of a woman’s mouth constantly repeating “Thank you” and “Danke” stresses the fragile system of public committees. In three other video works, performative sequences are shown that pose questions on social and cultural patterns and ruptures in the rules.“
