SORRYSieben bis zehn Millionen

In his photographs and videos, Panhans meticulously observes phenomena on the surface of everyday life. The shiny world of consumerism serves as a backdrop. In Sieben bis zehn Millionen, a man wearing a camouflage cap and hood tells of his experiences at an electronic discounter buying a new device; his is aggressive performance with its staccato flow of words, he talks of the exhausting “labor of consumption” as an experience that we all know, but that goes far beyond the everyday in its comic aspects.
