The inner German border and its reflection in media happens in two synchronised frames which show fragments from eastern and western television. Identical topics are presented from completely different points of view. The existence of dithered broadcasting systems makes it possible to take a fascinating look into the medium. The imagery from the broadcasts compresses reality and history into a seemingly continous chain of reactions. The video ends with archive footage from the upheavals of November 1989 as the turning point of the installation. It swaps around and floats back into the medium.
