Eric Bauer / Carina Khorkhordina: Vögel und Käfer

Eric, Axel and I arrived at the location on a Sunday, expecting to find the space relatively empty. On weekdays it's a busy backyard with car repair, hospital ward, rehearsal spaces and other things. Despite Sunday, three workers of Käferservice were busy loading what looked like heavy auto parts. We exchanged a few words with one of them; he was friendly and wished us to enjoy our recording. We took this as a clear sign that they didn't mind us filming while they worked. They expressed no protest when I set up the camera and throughout the piece. After we were done, the same man approached us and demanded to delete the video. Instead of such radical step we came to an agreement that the work will go through some censorship.
