Tete-beche binding. Publisher's description: A new word has entered the German lexicon: "Wutburger," "enraged citizen." It is generally used in the plural to designate crowds of people who are upset over certain issues; disaffected with the political process and feeling powerless, they come together to articulate their displeasure in public. Their "rage" is entirely focused on a particular aspect of outward reality, and their collective purpose is to change that aspect -- in some instances, by drastic means. But what about the individual "Wutburger"? What about the rage and disappointment that ultimately simmer within each one? What happens when pent-up feelings of frustration and impotence never find release? Christoph Grunberger and Andreas Lutz's video installation "Wutburger" explores the personal rage and individual failure of a German man. Looking back on his life, the protagonist Stefan W. -- played by Andreas Genschmar -- relives various episodes that eventually led him into the dead end, effectively a prison of his own making, in which he now finds himself.
