Die Erneuerung des Kniefalls von Warschau (2010).
Super-8 transferred to DVD. Still.

In a solo-exhibition in Gitte Bohr, Diego Castro shows videos, drawings and an installation from a series of works, which deals with the return, in the globalised era, of an expansive and warlike Germany. In the works, he sardonically makes ambiguous connections between Germany's foreign deployment of troops and politically incorrect references. A renaissance of restorative national politics is being approached with acid-tongued humour. Special guests: Erika Steinbach, Willy Brandt, Carl-Theodor zu Guttenberg, Pablo Picasso, Horst Köhler, Rudolf Hess, Nicole, Blondi and others.
