Dark Matter

Interactive audiovisual installation
Video triptych + wireless headphones + sensor

Dark Matter is designed as an individual experience: the visitor enters the initially dark, isolated room with a wireless headset that is connected to an orientation system via sensors. In the darkness, sound and visual elements emerge accordingly, leading into an immersive confrontation with 'hate speech' in right-wing extremist music and symbolism, the trail of which goes from a neo-Nazi music club (2002) to the assassination in Halle (2019).

The audiovisual composition is divided into 3 parts that build on each other and trace the development of right-wing extremism over the last 20 years, both musically and in terms of content and strategies. The researched footage end up in a reality that is in turn staged: as a gamification of terror.
