VIDEO-8MM ON HD 5'03 / BAD GASTEIN 2014 LEBANON-GERMANY
WITH FRANZISKA PIERWOSS
This video was shot in Bad Gastein (Austria) inside the local Congress Center, a modernist concrete building with red interior,
built in the 1960's by Gerhard Garstenauer that has been deserted since the 1990s. Garstenauer, one of the few representatives
of alpine modernism created a building in stark contrast to the belle epoque environment of the small city that once used to
serve as a hotspot for aristocrats and politics since its emergence as a spa location during the 18th and 19th century. Buildings
of both eras are now left behind in a desolate state, making them seem utterly historical. The video functions as a trailer for a jet
set crime film shot on super8 color negative film.
