  YESTERDAY WAS A DAY OF RUMOUR AND COUNTER RUMOUR
video, 4k, color, stereo, 3min, Matthias Fritsch 2019
commisioned as part of "DIGITAL FAIRY TALES: Vengeance is Mine"
presented by Leo Kuelbs Collection, curated by Leo Kuelbs and Richard Jochum
 
A video about war rhetorics. War is always connected to the use of language. Politicians find words to justify acts of war and send real people into battle. The title is a quote by Magaret Thatcher when she reacted on what has happened on the 1980s Falkland Islands conflict. Other politicians present their arguments on moral obligations or neccesities of going into war.

The politicians speeches are accompanied by marching masses of soldiers. What appears as a homogenous army, cathegorized by rangs, united by nationality, arguments, ethics or simply the rhythm of their marching – consists out of a heterogenous crowd of individual humans, each with their own character & emotions.
