Set in East Berlin in the summer of 1965, where Alfred and Lisa have recently divorced. “Al” is a mechanic; “Li” is a pediatric nurse. Al roams the city on vacation, meeting with former motorcycle buddies and flirting with a blonde named Rita. After moving out of the marital apartment in Prenzlauer Berg, he moves in with his mother. But via his neighbour Mogul, Al still has contact with Li. In the end, there may be some hope for a new beginning ... In images that are as poetic as they are documentary, Jürgen Böttcher, who was heavily influenced by 1950s Italian neo-realists, wove a tale of the yearning for a different life.
In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
