times new romance is a video work on collective dreams and their aesthetics.
Living in Berlin I am part of an ambiguous discourse that is reflecting critically about gentrification, being likewise part of it. Fashion and the question of exposed individuality appear as the downside of dynamics that simultaneously render collectivity. The ambiguous atmosphere that enchants the pavements and neighborhoods in my surrounding resembles a collective dream.
The video is based on a series of spoken fragments collected in the breezing summer nights in Berlin’s vogue districts, and is curious about the texture of that collective dream.
The dream of waking up.
