Bastian Schwind - 19'



In the collaborative video work, Familienidylle, (digitalised Super 8-film) Christian Kurz, Maria Porsch, Bastian Schwind and Flo Staffelmayr appropriated the style and characteristics of Super-8 film. Beginning in 1960s, this was the filmic medium that first allowed mass documentation of annual celebrations and the upsurge in holiday and excursion tourism. The video tells the fictitious story of a young couple from an Austrian middle class milieu in the 1960s and 1970s in a series of scenes separated by leaps of time. They meet, make excursions together ? among other destinations, to the atomic reactor in Zwentendorf (showing the enthusiasm for technical developments of the time) ? and become involved in the classic clichés of the period.
