Bestand (Volker Schlöndorff und Margarethe van Trotta) | Inventory (Volker Schlöndorff and Margarethe van Trotta), 2011

Video, 2‘50‘‘, with sound

The video consists of a succession of sequences taken from films by Volker Schlöndorff and Margarethe von Trotta. The sequences show objects detached
from their filmic context. However, the voices of the characters in the frame identify the objects by their name. The result is a spoken list of probs, presented by characters from the different movies. The soundtrack to the scenes of the film stills below goes as follows: „champagne“, „cigarette“, „benches and tables“, „car“, „house“, „radio“, „door“, „vase“, „candle“, „potato“.
