Entirely pictorial. Publisher's description: All year long, the people of Munich look forward to the Oktoberfest. When the time has come, the city's inhabitants, joined by tourists from all over the world, put on their Lederhosen and Dirndl dresses and gather on the Wiesn. With seven million litres of beer flowing at record speed, social boundaries are soon overstepped. The grass by the tents is used as urinals and becomes strewn with intoxicated corpses, while the police and medical teams try to keep up with sinking inhibition thresholds. Michael von Graffenried shines a light on the decadent side of what is probably the most famous folk festival in the world. His images make no difference between the celebrated folklore in the tents and the mass delirium.
