Kreislauf – Gottfried Benn by OddOne
Video created for a fine art exhibition in Eindhoven, Zimmer Frei! July 9&10 2010. Produced completely out of pictures taken at the old abandoned hospital in Beelitz-Heilstaetten 40 minutes out of Berlin.
Poem by Gottfried Benn translated into English:
The lone molar of a whore
who had died unknown
had a gold filling.
As if by silent agreement
the others had all fallen out.
But this one the morgue attendant knocked out
and pawned to go dancing.
For, he said,
only earth should return to earth.
