Isa Genzken/Kai Althoff
Die Kleine Bushaltestelle (Gerüstbau) / (The Little Bus Stop [Scaffolding])

2012, DVD, colour, sound, 71 min.

Between 2007 and 2010 Isa Genzken shot a movie in collaboration with Kai Althoff that moves between slapstick and improvisational theatre. They act out different couple constellations and take on different roles. At home and on the road, in Berlin, Cologne or New York they shot the film with a simple camera. The loosely connected sketches and scenes feature love, sex, the weather, disease, money and art time and again. Many episodes, laid out antagonistically or as a dialogue, can be interpreted as allegories of contemporary creative existence and its aporia.
