Video installation

Martin Brand’s three-part video installation Match is based on video recordings of a “battle” – those meetings in which hooligan groups organised their gatherings to mutilate each other. The amateur recordings of the 1980s were compressed for the Internet and additionally show the typical signs of high use of obsolete and successfully distributed VHS tapes. The absurd ritual becomes a historical and aesthetically dense farce of male everyday culture.
