// Video installation by Angelika Middendorf
& Andreas Schimanski
To be a lone wolf... or is it indeed better to howl with the wolves? The question is seldom posed as to one's professional goals – or rather: what are the utopias, visions or dreams of professional work? Asserting a conviction against the will of the majority in the knowledge that one is doing the right thing? Or, orientation towards similarity, and howling with the wolves? Precarious employment requires making decisions and using one's imagination, especially in cultural fields, whether as artist, curator or organizer. This CTM-initiated video portrait presents 64 short 25-second statements, sometimes casually thrown out, sometimes carefully considered visions of participants and visitors from CTM.09. Festival participants from the fields of music and (media-)art make statements on their professional goals.
