Schlingensief´s ambitious project in Burkina Faso


Christoph Schlingensief - an artist that many of you probably know. For those who doesn´t, here a quick reminder: He was an actor, a director and filmmaker. Often also a provocateur, for instance by doing a quiz-show about Hitler´s concentration-camps or organizing art-events on cemeteries. His projects always criticized politics or society or both. He once was arrested for carrying a poster that said "kill Helmut Kohl". Before he died 2010 from lung cancer, he came to Burkina Faso with a great vision.
