Battle Rap, 2009
Video, 7m 49s, Dimensions Variable
The work was created in the context of the exhibition "Crossing Munich: places, images and discussions about migration". Based on the socio-scientific research by the involved ethnologists about „ghetto discource“ and gangsterrap, I developed the video, in which I pit the ethnologists against the rappers in a linguistic rap battle. The research, written in a very scientific language, was shaped to a rhyme and chanted under efforts by the ethnologists. The rappers answered in their own language to the topics of the research.
