»Scenografi«, 2008, b/w, 65 min The film, shot in Berlin, partly on

the typical kind of rudimentary cartoons you find in the marigin of
newspapers or cross word magazines. Along with the construction and
deconstruction, the Scenografi of wood becomes an arena for
performances, dinners, friendly meetings, arguments, tears, nudity and
general decadence, including interference from invited and uninvited
guests such as: Tobias Bernstrup, Saralunden, SNOWP, Körner Union,
Michael Portnoy and the Sect of Wood.
The book, and the poster, made together with Nazareno Crea, consists
of outtakes from the film, transcripts of dialogue and documentation
of the process. In total 162 pages b/w offset, hand binded with
analogue interventions. It’s published by New Print International
