5 artists are using mixed media to portray and present their impressions of living in this world humorously in a gay, ironical, oppressive heavy or critical way.

They are investigating the relationship with their own cognition, their own willing and  the recognition and respect oft the other living. In a different manner they are shining a light on the needs of earth-living and also on their denial and prohibition.

Karin Petrowitsch is presenting a film: how people in our wold see other world inhabitants and how they treat them: A fox has got a fur

The normalization of creatures is able to give orientation to a society, but it can also cause a lot of harm. Humans, who have the power, define norms in order to dominate others much easier. They chase, motify, segregate and kill those, who do not conform to the norm. By the use of the arbitrary selection we can see the animal in the human beings. A wild fox, ill, emaciated ,without a fur and a tail like a rat doesn’t conform to the norm. Against the common attitude, to shoot this animal, the artist decided to help this fox, which she only knows from the wild-camera. By its fur it is shown, that civil courage is working. Video, about 15 minutes (from 5000 short (8 second) videos and fotos from the wild-camera over a period of exactly 1 year.
