La Folie du Cosmos
Stefan Eichhorn and me, we share an interest in utopias and science fiction of the 20th century. This was also noticed by Lutz-Rainer Müller, who opened his studio for an exhibition series of artistic dialogues. Stefan Eichhorn and I, who did not know each other personally until then, were invited to the kick-off. What emerged was a kind of retrofuturistic cabinet of curiosities borrowed from the French comic series Valerian–agent spatio temporel: La Folie du Cosmos. In addition to the US-American visual dominance in the genre of science fiction, this is also an allusion to Eichhorn's adopted home of Marseille, from whose streets the materials of his spacesuits were collected. The platforms derive from GDR television stocks. It may be that they were used for filming the famous DEFA science fiction.
