"Entartete Kunst (Fall II)", 2001, the documental film  

Entartete Kunst (deutsch) - "degenerate art" is a term, which became a synonym for a sort of "ununderstandable art" during the period of national socialism in Germany: The art that did not answer the idea, ideals and ideology of regime propaganda. Such kind of art has to be
cleared away, disposed, executed. Actually everything ununderstandable runs danger to be executed.
"Entartete Kunst II" is a documental film, which is showing the analogical processes going on everywhere eachtime. The film demonstrates this on the history of the project "Gedanken-Fluss (River of Thoughts)", produced especially for the art festival of a Lower Austrian city (famous for its good wine as well as nazi-scandal).The main idea of this public space project is to open the dialog with the inhabitants of the city, bringing art-questioning to them on the street (installation along the river, which formes the city), to take the people
to the open discussion about the purpose of contemporary art, creative processes and artistic production. But suddenly the installation was dissappeared. After long searching it
was found in the garbage dump of the town, accuratly devided into different garbages (plastic, wood, metall etc.). Funny enough, the signboard at the entrance says "Problem-stuff collecting". So, the art is still а problem stuff, the stuff, that makes problems and sometimes has to be executed. But after rescue operation the project survived and it is going on to
other cities, may be to be executed again, but may be to survive its ideas.
