Das Floß

von Sterbensängsten, güldenen Seemonstern, geschmackvollen Kannibalen und Weltverbesserern | von Sterbensängsten, güldenen Seemonstern, geschmackvollen Kannibalen und Weltverbesserern

A ship at sea, the captain gone, no land in sight – the passengers left to their own devices. Thus begins a tale which turns into two stories, due to opposite human decisions: the stories of Libertalia and the story of Medusa’s raft. In the beginning, there is fear – in its purest form: fear of death. The goal is survival. Once a meaningful basic instinct allowing humans to flee or fight instead of dying, we in Europe today have exported this fear into the far distance, pathologising it as a relic or perverting it into a political decision-making factor. And yet, existential fear remains a motor driving humanity forward. Thus, the two stories of a group of people on a boat represent an exemplary Zero Hour, the crossroads of a society: do we want to cannibalise each other? Or create a new form of communality?
