Untitled (Hamburger Schauspielhaus),
Janis Brandis, 6'
The Austrian actor Wolf Bachofner is delivering a performance at the Hamburger Schauspielhaus (theatre). He is doing a parody of popular Austrian patriotic songs.
Pinocchio, Martin Reinhart,
An animation. Video-stills of Haider´s election-posters in swift montage, showing his face, grinning above the text, "he never lied to you". Reinhart's film also shows the marks that resistance left on Haider´s image: Hitler-moustaches, long noses, etc. The soundtrack is the song of the childrens' TV-series "Pinocchio".
