In the frame of the festival DGENERATION, a drive-in cinema is introduced at the area of the former slaughter house that surrounds the Medienturm. A filmlet program of experimental films and documentaries with contributions by students of the disciplines of architecture, art and film in Graz, Linz, Vienna and Berlin is projected onto two huge screens. In cooperation with Radio Helsinki, the sound can be received via car radio. A performative “motorcade” supports the program, which follows the concept of “D-Generation”, primarily regarding its interpretation as “degeneration”. Result is a diversified program with a strong focus on Austria, which undemonstratively discusses current problems and manifestations of civilizing degeneration, ranging form excessive consumption (“Barcode”) via a distorted presentation of home (“Höhenrausch”) up to repression and a swing to the right (“PublixTheatreCaravan.mov”), thus representing a review from the viewpoint of young, independent film makers.
