Kobolds' Gesänge

1986, 5:10 min, color, sound

Kobolds' Gesänge is a starkly reductive and hypnotic work, structured around a single charged image. Vom Bruch's torso is inscribed with a rotating communications satellite, creating a composite image that metaphorically describes a collapse of the private and public space of mass media. This spectacle of technology imposed on the human body is accompanied by a haunting soundtrack of traditional songs from Ethiopia. Ultimately, vom Bruch turns his back on the camera, communicating with fundamental body language.

Music: Der Hamar Sudathiopien
