God's Entertainment

Cleaning, babysitting, I help in the house – 7 Euro


With reference to “Katzelmacher,” the Viennese collective God’s Entertainment deals with the figure and the social situation of the “Gastarbeiter.” The anxieties that Rainer Werner Fassbinder addressed in his 1968 play are still the same some 45 years later. Only now, instead of workers from Italy or Turkey, it is ostensibly the illegal immigrants who are competing with “the Germans” for work. Europe, the former cradle of prosperity, opportunity, and high wages, has become a fortress. The achievements of a century-long process of migration threaten to be overturned. The job market for non-elites is being disputed more than ever. Getting work these days has become like a hustle, you bargain over the price, you do the job, and you get paid. On the next day the search for a new potential employer starts all over again.
