»Strassenwitz« is an installation resembling a living room, which recites a cold war-era joke in morse code, while showing the artists failing attempts to decipher a fictional coded language.
The installation features 2 screens showing residential house windows from the outside in former East Berlin.
Standing outside the houses, the artist's voice can be heard trying to decipher a fictional code she projects into the flickering lights of the TVs inside the houses. Falsely assuming that there must be a secret form of communication at play, the artist makes use of stereotypical means and approaches to failingly make sense of her own background.
Simultaneoulsly screens in the installation emit actual morse code light flickering, reciting a GDR-era joke about indifference between socialism and capitalism.
