Art in Berlin: Hito Steyerl

At the very back-end of Arsenale gardens in Venice, I found an impressive video work during this years Biennale opening. Hito Steyerl’s How Not To Be Seen. A Fucking Didactic Educational .Mov File. Luckily for those of you who won’t make it to Venice on time, this work is now also presented at Berlinische Galerie during their 12×12 IBB Video lounge until September 23rd.
I won’t even try to describe what this video is about, for a quite confusing attempt you should read the information given on the website. Sometimes art impresses me and I am not instantly able to explain why, of course, the juggling of Google Earth with men in green suits and singers in a desert and then test screens and burkas and what not describes the confusing overload of stimuli but before we go down the road of Kunsttext-Bingo, let’s all just enjoy the show.
