English translation

A polyphonic text that raises questions about what responsibility art has when it comes to war. At the Venice Biennale an audience is watching a performance. Three narrative strings come out of this: 1. A fighter pilot is to drop a bomb on a school. 2. A boy films the bomb dropping – the video becomes an artwork. 3. A tank driver survives friendly fire – his daughter has now become estranged to him. Dramaturgical experimental piece with many possibilities.
