trip sitting Video, Collage, 8.32 min, lang_german, 2016

The collage trip sitting takes viewers on a short journey that invites them to contemplate. With the help of German-speaking intellectual greats, current transformative processes are named and questioned over the course of three chapters. The focus is on the disciplines of physics, psychology and philosophy. Classical concepts such as "time", "being", "meaning" and "knowledge" are addressed and thrown into a collaged debate in which humanist ideas of modernity collide with current positivist considerations. Ultimately, questions are raised about the purpose and orientation of the sciences.

Who or what does science serve and how is it embodied?
What does scientific progress mean for us and where should it lead us?

The confrontation of different views leaves a vacuum that encourages the viewer to perceive a positioning in terms of content. Furthermore, the question arises as to what kind of society we want to live in. What needs do we have and how can science serve us? In collage you can hear: Hannah Arendt, Vera F.
