Commentary
Artists

Tanks roll across bridges, fighter jets fly in formations, aerial photographs of destroyed German cities, between them fade-ins of Klaus vom Bruch in a military green quilted jacket; sometimes he combs his hair backwards and sometimes he strokes his shoulders. In case there is a danger of forgetting the history of the TV of the time, at the end of the loop vom Bruch fades in a quotation by Karl Marx: »If nothing about human relationships changes the whole shit will start again from the beginning.«
