LOVE RELIGION is a filmproject in shape of a mockumentary with a duration of 47min & a short version of 23min. the collaboration project with jurij balbekov & matti preuss as their exam for their studies of audiovisuelle medien at beuth hochschule berlin/germany from 2014 – 2017. LOVE RELIGION shows a critical exchange to religiousity & love. four protagonists deal with these topics during a workshop. they let the spectator participate on their negotiations to believe, sexwork, travelling & the search for identity of themselves as young western people, including contradictions & fractions. while researching for the film we shot in the city of berlin/germany, rural german areas, italy, state of vatican, israel/palestine, poland – in different houses of god*s, at the via dolorosa, at religious events ect. intense research is a base for the project, such as interviews with experts of theology & sexwork. LOVE RELIGION takes position, irritates & invites the spectator to rethink their own position or to develop a new one.
additionally the artist shaped the collected filmmaterial into the experimental films & visual collages LOVE // TANZ*TIERCHEN & LOVE*FACETS.
LOVE // TANZ*TIERCHEN tells you a story interwoven with deconstruction & relativity via depersonalized dancing bodies. experimental film, 15:22min.
LOVE*FACETS invites you into a visual insight of religious discourses in nine channels. creation, hope & life, reflection & rituals, light & knowledge, fundamentalism & limitedness, symbols & materialization. experimental multichannel, 10:50min.
