machina eX

Hedge Knights


August Mohr has pulled it off. On the 47th floor of the largest bank in the world, he founds his hedge fund and starts chasing after the big bucks. While August’s wife Clara tries to save her pharmaceutical company, the investment banker Denise is already sensing the danger. All three are gambling away their securities in the maelstrom of risks and returns. In their most recent analogue computer game, machina eX asks: What do we have to do with what happens on the financial markets – and what do they have to do with us?

Production: machina eX. Coproduction: HAU Hebbel am Ufer. Funded by the Hauptstadtkulturfonds.
