For Elise

Christoph Schlingensief, aged 22, on the state of the nation.

A trumpet player stands in the middle of the small town of Much barefoot in the snow and plays the German national anthem - more bad than good but with great conviction.

"The actions of the man, as the will to make a declaration of love, in a different context than kneeling with roses." (Christoph Schlingensief)
