Commentary
Artists

In ›Abwarten und Tee trinken‹ Marcel Odenbach is sitting on a couch covered with a Persian carpet in a Parisian apartment. It is quiet, strolling through the streets there is graffiti featuring the RAF symbol to be seen, next to it, the Café du Flore, once the meeting place of the Existentialists. Then the artist is back on the divan doing what the title of the video suggests, drinking tea (in German, ›Abwarten und Tee trinken‹, literally »waiting and drinking tea« means something like »waiting to see what will happen«).
