Warum ich keine Interviews gebe (Why I Don’t Do Interviews)

2003, DVD, colour, sound, 10 min.

In Warum ich keine Interviews gebe a 10 minute film based on improvisation, Kai Althoff plays an investigative art journalist who wants to question Isa Genzken about her work. Genzken concludes that to conduct interviews would be quite the opposite of creating art and answers the question about her approach to contemporary art by replying that the necessity to answer such a question is the reason why she does not do interviews.

Isa Genzken, Empire/Vampire, Who Kills Death
2003, DVD, colour, silent, 40 min.
Camera: Christoph Manz

Empire/Vampire comprises a sculptural group made out of everyday objects that evoke catastrophic scenarios as if seen in a diorama. Genzken develops a dystopian view on the present in these assemblages that are presented on pedestals at eye level.
The video Empire/Vampire, Who Kills Death shows how Genzken captured the eponymous group of works on film, aided by her cameraman Christoph Manz and how she interprets it as a sculpture that is incessantly moving and changing.
