Who nowadays populates the deserts of our world – is it cacti and camels or is it the fat white man and his wife tantalizing the camel by riding it passed around by disguised guides?
Is it individuums or is it the flocking who is moving, dancing over the beaches and flooding the natural sources?
First world anxiety and tropicalism- Paradies Valley researches along the fine borders between authenticity and touristic illusion.
Mass tourism leaving traces, creating patterns of movement all over the world striving after the fulfillment of exotic standarts.

Quergänge / 2016

Audiowalk & performative guidance in the permanent exhibition of the Grassimuseum – museum of ethnology Leipzig

29. jan – 8. may 2016
lendable audioplayer at the pay disc of the museum and downloadlink for the audiotracks

An Audiocollage guides you through the ethnological collection – visiting the sections of Africa, South- and North- America, Oceania and Australia-
commentarial, illustrating, indicative, enquiring.
Changing your perspective while walking through this arificial world of objects, captured inbetween the walls of the museum.
If the visitor expects a conventional audioguide, his claims may not be stisfied – he/ she will not find authorless knowledge transfer about shown exhibits. This audiowalk is an associative comment, a subjective artistical interpretation, whithout any claim to completeness or truthfullness.
Texts of various authors, interviews, sound collages and soundscapes try to offer a range of alternative perspectives on an institution like the ethnological museum. The fokus of this work is on finding new ways to observe the exhibited and to open the field of how to tell about it.
