The video and film works use scenes from old black-and-white films, manipulate the pictures and sounds with high-quality montage and thus create short films with a completely new meaning and bizarrely beautiful aesthetics. Martin Arnold, artist and filmmaker from Vienna, presents two of his best works which received many awards. »Pièce touchée« (1989, 16 min) grows from a banal domestic scene into a horror film. »Passage à l’acte« (1993, 12 min) makes a breakfast scene from the film »To Kill a Mockingbird«look like a surrealistic nightmare. As a special extra, the excellent short film »Copy Shop« by Virgil Widrich (2001, 12 min) will be shown. It is the story of a man who works in a copy shop and who copies himself to the extent that the entire world consists only of him.
