At home: Carsten Nicolai

I do not need to tell you what the work of artist Carsten Nicolai is like, since most of you know it already.
However, I can tell you that he is speaking the most pleasant Saxon dialect I’ve ever heard. Being born and raised in Saxony myself, I immediately lost the tone when I left aged 18. I’ve always had a troubled relationship with this special dialect, but for some months I am starting to enjoy it again. Carsten says to speak this dialect feels like to willingly fall in a kind of sofa, a very soft one.
