Rather die than die

HD Video Film, stereo, 66′.

Commissioned by the CNAP, Seconde vague Productions, Arte-La Lucarne.




“Rather die than die” takes the spectator into an experience of the duration of the 14-18 conflict and its traumatic nature through an incision in a singular story, that of the German art historian Aby Warburg and his plunge into psychosis following the declaration of Armistice in 1918. It is in the heart of a man’s madness, within his theatre of fear and cruelty, that the experience of violence can be expressed.
