Ausländer raus! Schlingensiefs Container (Foreigners Out! Schlingensief’s Container)

With Christoph Schlingensief.

German artist and agent provocateur Christoph Schlingensief’s controversial 2000 project “Bitte liebt Österreich“, a commentary on the presence of the far-right Austrian Freedom Party (FPÖ) into Austria’s governing coalition, is documented in this account of the weeklong installation. Schlingensief farcically applies the reality TV model of Big Brother-style competitive cohabitation to a group of immigrants he confines to a “container,” a mock detention camp in the middle of Vienna, broadcast live on Austrian TV where viewers vote to determine who will be eliminated and deported from the country.
