1992. Both home videos have the same date. Both videos reveal intimate things from the life of three teenagers. While few of them can‘t wait to take Ecstasy for the first time at the Amnesia, the world of the others ends behind Jena‘s tower blocks.
The artist / director Henrike Naumann (born 1984) comes from Zwickau, where the Nationalsocialist Underground (NSU) lived in bourgeoise underground and spanned their neonazi extremist murderers. This video work is a very personal approach to dealing with the fascist tendencies in her old home are as well as with the hedonistic self-optimizing drive of her generation. The obsolete medium VHS (Video Home System) in its loss becomes a mirror for that generation.
