Clear thing: property.
But who, then, owns the photo of my house?
The colour of your car?
The picture of our street?
Ever since there have been people, we have used pictures to get an image of the world. Today mankind films and photographs itself like never before. Two billion photos are uploaded to the networks every day. More than 45 billion cameras will produce images of us and the world in 2020. How do we deal with it when the world and its depiction coalesce?
Der illegale Film (The Illegal Film) shows how quickly and profoundly our handling of images is changing: Which pictures will we be allowed to see and how will access to them be regulated? How will this affect our relationships with each other? How will the new technologies shape our image of the world? How will we move through a world where “reality” and “image” can no longer be distinguished?
After the internationally successful Kinshasa Symphony, which has been awarded prizes at over 20 festivals, Der illegale Film is now the second collaboration between Martin Baer and Claus Wischmann.
