Andreas Liebmann



“Birthday!” is a celebration, a commemoration of the dead, a transfer of knowledge. The host is dead and gets “narrated in.” He fills the room and the heads. Wine is drunk. The protagonists doggedly hang on their ability to make merry until it collapses and the narrator disappears, making room for something new. With this evening, Andreas Liebmann continues crossing the borders between documentary, fiction and social production.
