Installation view, 162 von 172 Häusern stehen an der Hauptstraße…,
Galerie für Zeitgenössische Kunst, Leipzig, 2005

The slides / video clips show sports halls, community houses, and building with undefined functions, as well as buildings easily recognizable as bars and nightclubs. They map the sites where nightlife in an unspecified area in rural Denmark takes place: venues far apart from each other and from time to time, adapted into discotheques and ballrooms for one night. The images of the buildings in bright daylight alter with short fictional texts narrated from the point of view of a group of teenage girls. Based on the narratives of a local teenager, the texts describe the places, interiors, and parties taking place there, as well as the behaviour of the partygoers and the interaction between gender and age groups.

1 slide projection, 81 slides (English), 1 video: 13 min., 3 printed T-shirts
