A graphic designer trained in Leipzig, Dammbeck has also been making films since 1976, often based on animation. He worked on Herakles Höhle for almost the entire 1980s. The starting point was the fairytale “The Willful Child” and Heiner Müller’s Herakles 2 oder Die Hydra. In passing through “traces, fragments, found pieces” of a multi-media nature, Dammbeck develops a speculative theory of power.
