In the course of urban redensification and gentrification processes, the demolition of buildings produces numerous spectacles of precise destruction that strongly attract passers-by. Collective protest is an exception. Instead, there is either admiration for the unbelievable power of the demolition machinery or fascinated dismay at the sight of destruction.
The experimental film, consisting of documentary footage of various demolition sites in Hamburg, creates a new space when being combined in a fragile constellation with the acoustic space of various analytical and emotional comments. The zone of uncertainty between the spectacular and the (hidden) structural elements of capitalism forms the subject of the film.
