Poetic Archeology. 2015
Video, 30 Min
This road movie shows images of a Middle-European landscape characterized by a complex layering of memory and amnesia. With that, the following question intrudes upon the artists: Does this landscape force us to place modernity and a post-historical sense of time in another, more poetic perspective, a perspective able to bring about a new connection between landscape and the awareness of time?
