Evo Preisner - Durchschauen

3:43, 2012, Video Art
Durchschauen shows 6 fragments (7 counting, but 5 is non-existent) in hard montage, with scenes which by themselves are also fragmentary. Between the colossal buildings, the story of Hypnos, the god of sleep, is told, and a little part about Endymion who slept with his eyes open so he could keep an eye on his beloved one. Maybe the video is a critical reflection on the Financial World: the shots are taken on the Zuid-As (South-Axis) of Amsterdam, home of large banks.
