Die Flieger-Trilogie #2: Ein Hoch auf das Bügeln

Rotraut Pape

Music video

»At the time, I wanted movement, development, change, and in the second semester, I immediately signed up for the first video course that was offered to artists.« (Rotraut Pape, 1998). For the second part of her Flieger trilogy, Pape uses material from her film Flieger dürfen keine Angst haben (1984), which began with four pieces of music by Holger Hiller. Space and time are out of joint. We enter a cinematic parallel universe in which power relations are reversed.
