Installation view at Art Museum Bonn during the Exhibition VIDEONALE 10, and excerpts.
Fish Soup is Ulu Brauns very first video collage /hybrid video, that he realized together with Alexej Tchernyi. It was based on a "recipe"-idea of Tchernyi and initiated by Ulu Braun and his vision of hybrid cinema in 2002. As those methods were rather new, and computers and skills still slow, it took a while that "Fish Soup" could be finished (2005) and published (2006).
Mankind history shows that even abstruse ideas like the building of pyramids and moon expeditions are realizable and afterwardsÂ admired and mystifyed. The extent, the overcoming of normal physical borders and the inexplicability of the procedure are playing a large role in that. Fish Soup describes similiar to a recipe the video the preparation of the mediteranian Sea into a dish.
