Satisfying needs Part4: Social intercomunication
Stuttgart / Germany, 2017
The attempt to establish a social connection through a line of toilet paper. When the train leaves the station the contact line unfolds until it snaps and ends in a mess.
»Satisfying needs« is an ongoing video series, 2016 et. seqq
In a world shaped by neoliberal capitalism public life becomes more and more absurd. As we are continually focusing on economic aspirations there is no space left for a good life. To satisfy your needs you have to deal with the social structure. The protagonists of the videos try to assimilate their satisfaction of needs to the absurd world we live in. They operate with their social environment and try to hack the immovable everyday world with performative actions. It's a breaking through the surface. The desire to get either behind, into or beyond the warp.
