Foreigners out! SCHLINGENSIEF’s Container

Paul POET / digital / 90min. / 2002 / Germany + Austria / Subtitles supported by Festival/Tokyo

One day multiple containers were placed in front of the Vienna State Opera. They contained 12 immigration applicants constantly watched by surveillance cameras constantly uploading and streaming footage onto the Internet. Every night, a web vote was put, and the two chosen by the viewers were expelled from the containers and the country, and the last one left was allowed to stay in Austria. A record of Schlingensief’s public performance/ art terrorism in Austria in the year 2000, when the extreme right anti-immigrant party came to power.
