Green gras on two sides, a monotonous sky, a picture-book-like red brick wall, which is endlessly conquered.
A person stands in front of the wall, lifts his/her body up the wall and jumps over, turns around and conqueres it again and again. The initially classical sequence of actions gets ruptured by the causeless turn during the jump of the wall. The recurrence of standing in front of the wall combines the beginning and the end. Moreover, it exaggerates classic narrative structures.

Since February 2011 another video of Konrad Mühe is presented on the new online CHANNEL of the Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof at Arte-Creative online zu sehen:
»Durchzug« documents an alternative running direction through the city. The existing urban structure gets negated, the apartement building – sealed from the outside world – gets entered through grit and infiltrated through the underground cellars. The locomotion is straight and uninterrupted and complies with the cutless videorecording.
