The film, originally made in 2015 for the exhibition: Wartezeit, 13th RischArt_Project, at Munich Central Station, has gained unpredictable relevance today:
A window provides a glimpse into a control room scene. The viewer looks at a video recording of two men who must have been sitting there earlier. What are they waiting for, and what has put them in that position? The work is inspired by the international Pepper movement. Peppers are people who prepare for disasters by, among other things, stockpiling food and building shelters.
The installation reverses the familiar, spatial order: We are not looking at the disaster from the safety of our living room, but are locked out of the safe space into which the two protagonists have taken refuge.
