Austria

Auslander Raus!: Schlingensiefs Container

An insightful, funny chronicle and reflection on one of the biggest public pranks and acts of art terrorism ever committed steming from German director Christoph Schlingensief's reaction to the success of Austria's extreme right-wing Freedom Party (FPO) in the 2000 election. Realising public xenophobia and the new hate politics, he installed a public concentration camp right in the middle of Vienna's tourist area with surveillance cameras streaming the asylum seekers' lives onto the internet, with the least popular deported each night of the week. In German without subtitles. 2000.
