Im Augenblick. Die Historie und das Offene

History and the Open

Philosophical positions on the question of what differentiates human beings and animals constitute the starting point for a cinematic discourse, in which goats serve both as a projection surface and as “actors”. Among the topics of discussion are Nietzsche’s writings on history, and texts by Montaigne, Descartes and Agamben. Bodo Hell, literary author and herdsman on the Grafenberger Alm, draws comparisons between the field of the text and the field of pasture, and follows in the tracks of the enigmatic goats in their open space of the “never nowhere without not”.
