Christoph Grünberger and Andreas Lutz’s video installation Wutbürger explores the personal rage and individual failure of a German man. Looking back on his life, the protagonist Stefan W.—played by Andreas Genschmar—relives various episodes that eventually led him into the dead end, effectively a prison of his own making, in which he now finds himself. A five-hour performance set in a custom-made box was recorded to produce images that give the viewer the feeling of being confronted with a live action that addresses him directly. The box and video installation have been presented in thirteen different public settings in Germany and won an Excellence Award at the 19th Japan Media Arts Festival.
With essays by Andreas Genschmar, Andreas Lutz, Frauke Nowak, and Christoph Tratberger.
