A snowy street, a man runs up to the viewer, an apartment, nervous circling. The TV is switched on, news. A telephone call, the eyes of a hooded man wearing a balaclava. The viewer never sees more than individual parts – the actor’s feet, a hand, his mouth. Finally, the well-known opening credits of a popular German detective series, ›Tatort‹. With every individual cut in the video the possible storyline is interrupted, that simple cause and effect approach used in this kind of TV format is completely subverted.
