Toute la mémoire du monde / Alles Wissen der Welt
35 mm transferred to HD, 2 channel video installation, colour, stereo, 7 min., 2006
Analogous to the movie "Toute la mémoire du monde”, 1956, by Alain Resnais, we filmed the Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris using slow tracking shots. In a double projection thousands of stocking room shelves without books flash by and in the reading room the camera merely captures a handful of young people, whiling away their time. Amongst the waiting people the withdrawal of knowledge provokes first signs of resentment, first signs of rebellion.
