A VHS installation from the realm of documentary film. The pair of home video recordings, both made in 1992, are shown on two separate monitors in order to provide an aestheticised trip back to the time when the reunified German was a fragile construct and young people succumbed to (self-)destruction.
VHS technology, prefab housing estates, the former East Germany, the sharp rise in neo-Nazism, the spread of hard drugs. Replace East Germany with Czechoslovakia and you see the shared experiences of the post-communist states.
