Serial Loop.

An Argumentation Carousel for Contributors.


Is the love-hate relationship with German television the lowest common denominator in this country? The authors Antje Vauh and Carina Pesch examine the sensitivities of the viewers in the public broadcasting system with interviews and scenic elements.

Due to a streaming problem, a sentence gets stuck in the living room of a TV viewer. This line from the ARD telenovela “Red Roses” drives the viewer mad in its constant loop. Who screwed this crap up? And why should he pay for it? An obscure female voice mediates, reassures, provokes. Little by little, the viewer encounters the entire production chain, from the actor who spoke the sentence, to the editor, to the television director and the broadcasting council. And, he is not alone on his sofa in front of the TV.
