Mao Tse Tung, Ausgewählte Werke, Band II, 35mm, colour, music: Martin Zrost, 2001

In the late 80ies I got an edition of “Mao Tse Tungs Selected Works” in 5 volumes (printed in 1968 in Beijing in German). And ever since then they are standing in my book shelf challenging me…

2 volumes I have transformed in the meantime. Volume I is a drawing book and volume II is an animation movie - 3 more are waiting. It is a project that stretches over a long period of time.

Joe Sneed & Jordan Mitchel

These five works have their source in YouTube videos posted by RT, a mass media corporation in Russia. The original footage was published within hours of being filmed in Cairo and was viewed by millions of people seeking a lens into the revolution that unfolded in Egypt in January 2011. We have appropriated and edited segments of these source videos and redrawn a media’s presentation of history.

Joyce Rohrmoser - Surviving China

I have been learning Chinese for 4 years. 3 years ago I went a few months to China to make photos and videos for an Italian fashion company. In my spare time I tried to cope with life there. For this purpose I have developed a strategy: to make video-performances in which I assume different roles. This video-project helps me to understand China in a critical and humorous way.
