Some End of Things: The Conception of Youth
DE 2011

An egg wanders through Judith Hopf’s film Some End of Things: The Conception of Youth (2011), strides stoically through the atrium of a modernist architecture, climbs the stairs, traverses passageways and connecting bridges, is mirrored by the grids of the facade in passing – until it finally fails in its attempt to gain entry into the edifice of glass, steel, and concrete. The egg is too big, the door too small, and the bodies too hard to give way – an idea is caught in the structure of the standardized world. (Grazer Kunstverein)
