Photographs, films, collages, montages, installations
Mixed media / dimensions variable
With Magdalena Kopp

The material for this group of works comes from an extensive police archive with films and negatives from the years 1973–85. It shows images of political disturbances, terrorist attacks, demonstrations, people being evicted from houses and bank raids. The archive was evaluated and the prints produced in close collaboration with Magdalena Kopp, a trained photographer. In the above-mentioned period of time, Kopp was an active member of Revolutionäre Zellen (Revolutionary Cells) and married to a terrorist, Ilich Ramírez Sánchez, commonly known as Carlos. He and Kopp separated, she served several years in prison in France and has been a free woman since 1994.
