Städtchen (single—channel video, 2012) On structures and demarcation of accessibility in public spaces.
In a district of Berlin, men in uniforms guard a sealed classical building and escort a passer through the streets. A factual text tells of the situation within the closed area, which can be entered only by permit. Still images portray peaceful town houses, modern and restored buildings surrounded by parking strips.
The sound reinforced the idyllic impression.
With the help of documentary representation method and Reenactment the film tells the story of the place fragmentary, but does not explain in detail.
