"The installation "Alles in bester Ordnung III" consists of a ready-made, a mass-produced wooden summerhouse on sale in many DIY stores, standing on an artificial lawn. Around it are decorative items, gardening tools, children's toys... The impression vacillates between an impersonal range of goods and an everyday scene which has just been deserted.
This installation served Robert F. Hammerstiel as a stage-set for his video production Alles in bester Ordnung IV in which four actors are to be seen showing everyday, constantly recurring activities in a type of "father-mother-child role-play". Types of pictorial and body language are used here such as are common in television advertising, reproducing a family idyll. The repetitions, which were filmed in reality, were repeatedly cut one after the other, thus trenchantly uncovering stereotyped patterns of behaviour."
