German Subtitles, Video, TV material, 4:3, 5 Min., color, 1993

»German Subtitles« is a montage of material from TV-news and other sources (feature films, documentaries and radio broadcasts). It was conceived as an audioguide for an "art in public space"-project in Berlin and should have been installed in a Tourist-Infophone at the Brandenburger Tor. Rejected as too "political" by the curators this idea was never realized. To us, all the issues addressed (the fall of the Berlin wall and its socio-political consequences, the increasing popularity of the New Right) were too important to be just dropped. So the audiotape "translated" into a videotape.

* »German Subtitles« was originally made in 1993.
