1989: The Great Disintegration

Part of "16 Jahre andcompany&Co. / The & of History"


1989: All of Phantásia is under threat! Bigger and bigger parts are disappearing without a trace, not even a tiny hole: NOTHING. But this nothing exerts tremendous attraction. Many flee from it, but some dive in headlong – only to reappear on the other side as a lie, a fixed idea, fake news… With the help of the Will-o’-the-Wisp (Luise Meier) and the Racing Snail (Karsten Krampitz), andcompany&Co. will reactivate disintegration and redirect the dissolving energies until the old lies become new stories and fantastic narratives: “People don’t allow anyone to say anything to them, but you can tell them anything.” (Walter Benjamin)
