Was Soll Ich Anders

video performance, 2020

The first Lockdown due to COVID-19 I spent in Helsinki as part of my Erasmus. For a couple of days I lived alone in a flat meant for four people. Spending a lot of time there in my room by myself, I listened to “Nino aus Wien” and stumbled across his song „Was soll ich anderes“. I listened to it over and over again and was fascinated of how well it described my current state of mind and emotions, especially the chorus „what else should I do besides nothing“.

I wanted to own the song and my feelings connected to it, so I practiced it all day and finally performed it in front of the camera in the evening. Imagining to stand on a stage in front of a big audience. I later shared it with friends as support in difficult times.
