Nowadays summits increasingly tend to be [...] Non-events. (Giorgio La Malfa) The multi-channel video installation consists of three portraits, each of them document the debate on the authority over the area around Schloss Elmau, the place where the latest G7 summit took place. Every video represents one perspective of those, who are actively involved in the summit's performance to make it an event the locals, the police, the demonstrators. Who owns the place and what happens to a village when it becomes the scenery of global economic disputes.
