Tribute Jürgen Böttcher


Jürgen Böttcher
German Democratic Republic 1984
46 min

Böttcher, the painter, works with magnificent black and white images. The line patterns of the railroad tracks, the shunting locomotives, the open goods trucks moving slowly towards to the camera: graphic elements which turn the everyday reality of a switching station into a surreal world of pictures and premonitions. Hammering, boots crunching on gravel, whistling, shunting noises. No commentary, no talking. There is nothing to say.
