Blicklust

Sometimes I ask myself what KIND of films I make + and I think they are horror films. Do I make horror films? In 1991 I received a non-identifiable and worn out super-8 S/M Porno film, which shows a woman tied up in various manners and I couldn´t resist. I knew that I had film material of surgery and I mixed the tied-up woman with the surgery material confrontationally and still a few more and to 2/3 of a drawer of found footage until Blicklust-end. The Pumping-screen films The Murder Mystery and Blicklust are the first two of a planned six-part series which reflects on sexuality and violence and which will possibly be combined under the title "Dietmar Brehm Horror". Title of next episode: Party. Basically, I show in this series what I always see on TV. The TV set is one of my favorite source. I like to watch TV without sound and with other manipulations. And I watch restlessly the real and fake dead bodies. They are always there and I have simply gotten used to the fact that TV is a pump of corpses. In fact, I like better the filtered reality than the actual one. I prefer distance rather than closeness. At the moment, Yugoslavia and Somalia produce a mountain of corpses, others next. According to schedule. The planet is a planet of destruction. The bullet flies without contact somewhere and all around the area of inexplicability and sometimes I have the feeling that all is a process of decay of bodies alive and I suspect that all the structures of society, as well as the way their function, are legalized diseases of the mind. Everything should work differently. Parallel to the film work, which tackles the problem of sexuality/violence, a matrix develops in several short and longer films, in which various cinematographical manifestations of light will be investigated and next to filmic considerations are a few considerations to graphical and painting work on paper surface and on screen.
