Lektion 13

 

(2005, DV, Color, 12 Minutes)

 

With: Christian Mock, Friedelise Stutte

 

An ironic take on the codes and conventions of narrative film. Signifiers such as camera movements, typical staging processes, sound and musical cues have been disconnected from their usual content/context. Actors let pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary take the foreground. The language itself then speaks.
