TWO GIANTS THAT EXIST HERE - A GERMAN FAIRYTALE confronts us with the rightwing spiritual movement in Germany, which gained a strong following during the Corona pandemic. In symbolic encounters, such as a train ride passing by the Lorelei and underscored with Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries", original audio recordings from the rightwing extremist conspiracy scene are juxtaposed with the visual aesthetics of German fairy tales.
