Commentary
Artists

After romantic landscapes, pictures of a trip through Brazil, shots of »exotic« objects appear, a tropical bird, photographs of mining in the Ruhr region. Towards the end of the video a quotation from Ingeborg Bachmann appears: »Revolution does not do any good, nor do resolutions or currency laws. The whites will come again in spirit when they can no longer come.«
