13x17, 2011


In my social and political environment there are many rumors about the suburbs of Dresden. The first time I arrived in one, I found myself in front of a huge highrise, full of people, but still I felt a strange abandonedness. What causes this impression? For me, the only way of proving it, was getting to know what was behind each of the 207 doors of the building. I started with one object, rang a doorbell to exc­hange it for another object. In this way I continued until I changed the position of 73 objects within the building.

In the accompanying film I'm verbalizing fictive prejudices that people had when they saw me in front of their door.

as ladras do lixo
a vida pássaro
ricas com riscas
na casa do céu
