The artistic work „Die Schreitenden“ is a confrontation of the the history of military parades. Video images of marching crowds from different countries and times merge to a moving pattern. Through technical interactions the movement destruct itself again and again. While observer passing by visitor‘s body sets off a manipulation and makes video clear. White stripes taped on the ground like guidelines imitating a front area. Insensibly visitors takes part in this ceremony from the past till today cele- brating arms and clashes.
