2. Description of Projects
Proposal, Potsdam 1999 and New York 2001
Slide Projection, ca. 10 minutes
The projection consists of a sequence of 40 photographs that show
various sites in the city of Potsdam. The photographs are descriptive
and seem to suggest a narrative yet they don’t tell a story. Two
dialogues, added as subtitles, tackle different stages of a film
production: the attempt to write a film script (giving hints to its
content without revealing the plot) in the first one, and the
preparations for a film shoot in the latter one, enacting a more
distanced professional tone.
Hey Produktion, Berlin 2001
Judith Hopf, Mona Kuschel and Katrin Pesch
Video, 7 minutes
The social function, imagination and use of an exemplary park landscape
of our times is at the center of ‘Hey Produktion’.
A female protagonist sits in a park trying to relax, but things around
her appear uncannily displaced. She feels forced to give up her search
for contemplation and now meets her doppelganger, who leads her into a
completely altered reality.
Hudson River Park, New York 2002
Slide Projection, ca. 13 minutes
Hudson River Park is a quasi-documentary narration in four ‘chapters’
about a contemporary city development project in New York. The series
of images shifts between fact and fiction, the accompanying text refers
to the discursive aspects of the production of space.
