Teaser - Episode 5: The Mentors

In the fifth episode, when I meet Alexander Frank, I ask myself how to talk about this world and how to learn in it.


Alexander was my first informal mentor. When I was 14 years old I was magically attracted to him. We wrote e-mails and letters until we lost contact. To this day I catch myself imitating the words and using the writing style I first came into contact with in his messages.




„Don‘t be held up by people who can‘t understand what questions are bothering you. For you they are real. And for many other people, too. You are definitely not alone!


Today‘s adults think that if they are dead, if their dreams have died and they only know the hardships of life, they are grown up. And these adults think that children are stupid and dreamy. [...] I do not want to become like the living dead, the bourgeois adults of today.“

In this episode I would like to work with the concept of (un-)learning. What do we understand as „learning“? How has learning changed through digitisation? What class languages do exist and how do we „learn“ to perform the values we represent and the images we have of different age groups? What are concepts of „generations“, what is hidden behind the transfiguration of youth, and what role does the body, its language, its ways of reading play?


What role does logocentrism take as a colonial pattern of thought? What forms of resistance exist in the small and in the large?



*This page contains information on one of three episodes that are still in preparation. In the sense of practical research, they are each "exposés" and teasers to be expanded. They are already legitimate as cinematic questions. The visualization of the process is programmatic.


The video is a poetic approach towards death and the particular role of the (mediterranean) sea within the circles of mammal life.




Das Video nähert sich dem Tod auf poetische Weise und beleuchtet die besondere Rolle des (Mittel-)Meers innerhalb der Lebenszyklen von Säugetieren.
