SUPERHIGH premieres at Platoon Kunsthalle on November 20th
By Catherine J. Fehre . November 19, 2013
This Wednesday at Platoon Kunsthalle, don’t miss the premiere of SUPERHIGH, the “video music art drug mockumentary” created by German artist duo Boris Eldagsen and Sabine Taeubner. Co-producer Arte Creative will broadcast the video on Arte TV on November 21st, World Television Day, as well as propose a year-long dialogue.
SUPERHIGH is a 40 minute film, which uses a mockumentary/reality show style to combine and present “drug-free” and “drug-high” experiences. Six candidates represent different methods of getting high without drugs (for example Candle Staring, Knock Out Kiss, Whirling Dervish, 12 Cycle Meth Breath, and Kin Hen Meditation). Then a jury, made up of personifications of your favorite drugs like cocaine, LSD, and speed, judge the efforts of the drug-free high. In round two, the candidates combine two different drug-free methods, as ketamine, MDMA, and marijuana join the jury.
The video is in German and English with German and English subtitles. Watch the trailer here.
Doors open at 8pm and the video starts at 9pm. Afterwards at 10pm, the Yasmin Gate (Killerrrec) DJ set begins. Partners include Platoon Kunsthalle, Your Mom’s Agency, Artistdock, and berlinerpool.
