Berlin in the year 2031: Where once the Berlin Stadtschloss was built, destroyed and rebuilt, today the desert sneers at the last man standing, who desperately calls for his old heraldic animal. The eagle appears, but no longer as his servant. ROTARY SPIT shows a vision of the future, in which images become conscious and free themselves from their interpretation as a power symbol. By layering fictional and documentary material on top of each other, new spaces emerge, in which fantasies of revolt must compete with the materiality of the natural world. Despite a dystopian starting point, there remains slight hope, that the vicious circle of construction and destruction can be broken and that the black-and-white thinking of opposing views turns to gray matter that is still moldable.
