Why I never became a painter
short film, HD, 8‘58“, sound by Kurt Schlegel, 2017
The video, titled ‚Why I never became a painter’, refers to the video art pioneers. In honour of their works, this video consists of several reenactments of well-known scenes, freely adapted and sampled into a story on its own.
A puppet (referring to Tony Oursler’s Video for David Bowie ‘where are we now’) acts as a presenter of the various chapters, recalling ‘Berlin Horse’, ‘Bossy Burger’, ‘Dog Duet’, ‘AAA–AAA’, ‘I’m not the Girl who misses much’ and many others. 
'Why I never became a painter' has been shortlisted for the LOOP DISCOVER Award 2017, dedicated to video art pioneers.
