TRICKY DISCO traces various forms of spatial and cultural appropriation, initially following the traces in the author's biography. The film draws parallels in the urban development of Berlin and Frankfurt. It unmasks the attempted appropriation of the Techno and House movement as a "German cultural asset" and depicts how efforts are being made to monetize it through hasty museumization.

Sebastian Weise

Sebastian Weise, born 1983 in Dresden, studied visual arts and film in Berlin and Vienna. In his works, which always refer to space, he uses film, video art, and performance as contrasting foils. For this he utilizes documentary strategies and forms of experimental video essays.
