"Juristic Bodies - corporate identity projects"

1995, dogfilm (Heitmann / Scheffner) for ZDF, Das kleine Fernsehspiel, Betacam SP, 49 Min.

Our passport marks the junction between the physical and the juristic body. As the border space, in which the items "identity" and "identification" overlap, the passport takes the role of a social skin. The relation between the government/ office and the individual owner of the passport is defined very clearly: "This passport is property of the Federal Republic of Germany". The passport becomes the direct expression of the power of definition which decides who is "German" and who is "Non-German", who is "European" and who is "Non-European", who is "legal" and who is "illegal".
