medium-length film and video installation (48'), 2016
Münster recounts the fall of a utopia. In 1533, people who believed they were chosen established a form of communism in the North of Germany. But this dream, which drew on mystical hope, soon collapsed.The city was besieged and eventually defeated. Two besiegers watch the walled city and tell of the rise and fall of this short-lived kingdom.The one as if he were guileless, the other as if he were a historian, they discuss the invention of myths, the heady lure of faith, and the virtues of tyranny. Münster exists in the form of a medium-length film and a video installation.
