The clip is part of preparations for a video called Classes. Its principal idea is presenting relations of class formation as compositional constellations of and within filmic shots. Therefore, direct narrations or motifs on social class will be neglected. For me, working about and with such explored compositional constellations does not necessarily make my art practice political, but it is an attempt to work with and against film as a societal form of the audiovisual, which also always separates. So the foremost political question that should concern me about my art practice (result) is, how it is actually reactionary.
