Body Missing (also 6 channel installation of 6 tapes, each 6:00)

Vera Frenkel

1994, 36:00 minutes, colour, English, German


Based on a casual conversation overheard in a bar, Body Missing is a work that seems to be about the fetishistic art-collecting practices of the Third Reich. Situated between documentary and fiction in such a way that each interrogate the other, Body Missing draws on both historical and current sources.

A cycle of six tapes, each six minutes long. Each tape may be looped for a six channel installation.
