Das Fest. 18″ Video Resume.

April 11th, 2012

What do we celebrate? The celebration of a celebration. Mechanics of “Das Fest”. We look for a contemporary way of celebration, merging different types. Try to find for a „true essence of celebration“, or the grammar of celebration in order to arrive to something more „naked“. Celebration is then a metaphor to a theater play, fragility: people exposed but spoiled.

Success, competition, social groups and social roles. The idea of being exposed, humiliated and watched. „Winners´s speech“, family, masks, seduction and manipulation, obedience, dana, gift, rituals, ghosts, the absence of loved beings, celebration, ridicule in order to break that feeling. That’s what celebration is about.
