PETER IS DEAD (PETER IST TOT)
Peter is dead. Why do humans make puzzles? Does photography conserve memory? What is a good story? Why is one interested in the life of a stranger? How do you read a stranger?
This video consists of photographs which I found in the garbage bin of my house. The essence of a stranger's life was thrown away. I felt a strong urge to look at these pictures and to give them an order. A fictive biography based on analogue photographs tells the life of Peter the truck driver and barkeeper from West-Berlin, who could also have been called Klaus or Jürgen. Why were these pictures thrown away? Does Peter not deserve to be remembered? Or do we just want a good story?
