SHOWCASE BEAT LE MOT

Nazisuperpeople are better than you all – The Horror of the Ordinary

 /Germany/

The Nazi Super People hire a choir so they can travel on their voices. A choir with angels and trumpets. They’re supposed to sing Wagner but they only know Verdi. “Whatever”, think the Supernazis.

For their slogan is: make space. And their need for fresh air and wide, open spaces is mightier than any hatred. The Supernazis mow down everything and anything that’s in their way because they realise that destruction makes the world so much less complicated.

They don’t have a blueprint or a plan; they just want to create space, empty space. They don’t want to be understood. They consider any attempts in this direction as being superficial. Being misunderstood worries them not a jot.

The others pass things down to posterity by making them sacred and thereby conserving them. The Supernazis, however, make every situation practicable before liquidating them.

They don’t see anything as being permanent and for this very reason, they see paths everywhere. And because they see paths everywhere, they have to clear everything out of their path.

(Based on ‘The Destructive Character’ by Walter Benjamin)
