A program on the body in its relation to the world of things and values. Cornucopia plays with the sensual charging of objects in art and its myth-making power. Trigger Warning is an inventory of things that illustrate the vulnerability of the body. Less Lethal Fetishes looks at different forms of being an object and the emancipation from objectifying conditions. In Quella che cammina, a female film character serves as the starting point of an associative self-questioning of the author. Ein Film über den Arbeiter tells of the existence as an artist and worker between economy and empathy from the first person perspective. A Short Video about Tate Modern shows the museum as a producer of merciless visibility. Portrait of Karl Marx… and Ink in Milk unfold narratives about the origin of politics in the constellation of bodies.
