Episode 1: The Idea

This episode begins with Bernd Zimmer and the artists’ statements about the idea of the project. The film shows the completed columned hall and then jumps back to 2019. Bernd Zimmer is confronted with a protest action of the opponents in the village and the episode accompanies him until the laying of the foundation stone in November. This is followed by the first news about covid-19, the construction work begins with the first lockdown in early 2020. We accompany the artists Björn Melhus, Justine Gaga, Jens Lehmann, Wolfgang Stiller and finally the Kirghiz Shaarbeck Amankuul.
