Zeigt is a work made of 4 prints (2 of them are for sale here) that show the last frame of a projection of promotional glass slides. These slides, measuring 8.5×8.5cm, were used in cinemas in post-war era in the late 40s and 50s in Saarland (under French rule until 1957 and today Germany). During this time the cinema program started about an hour before the feature film and was composed of newsreels. There were local and national ads as well as the re-education films and Marshal plan films, which were supposed to “educate” the German population on how to live in a so-called US style democracy–capitalism. The participation in this highly political space of collective spectatorship was in some cases obligatory, as food stamps were given at the entrance to the theatre. The slides come from Sirah Foighel Brutmann’s grandmother, Bela Brutmann, a polish refugee who, with her husband, was stopped at the border on her way to Paris and settled in Saarbrücken. She quickly opened a clothing shop, bringing haute couture raincoats from Paris and was the first to sell jeans in the area. The slides promoted that store.
