Schneewittchen (Snow White)
Video | hdv | color and b&w | 19'40'' | Germany | 2017
What role can culture play, when dead bodies are not burried after death, but being used for other purposes “Snow White” examines this question, using stalinist Mausoleums, preparated animals in Natural History Museums and relics in churches. What form of story telling is being used to hide actions and translate them?
Thadeusz Tischbein is a Germany-based video artist. He studied between 2008 and 2016 in Leipzig, Braunschweig (Germany) and Bucharest (Romania) with Candice Breitz, Clemens von Wedemeyer and Günther Selichar. His 2017 video essay SNOW WHITE (2K Cinemascope, 19:40 min) is a journey to the dead bodies in mausoleums, churches and museums. In THE ATLAS OF THE WOUNDED BUILDINGS (HD, 12:56 min, 2016) he is trying to examine narrations written in bullets holes. INVENTORY (HD, 16:9, 5:49 min) from 2015 is talking about the strange living room of so called office plants.
