Till Langschied: Finally Time to Learn Some French

Corona Kino

To deal with our digital reality, Till Langschied often works with GIFs, whether of his own making or commonly shared “reaction GIFs” used for video collages. Finally Time to Learn Some French combines “semi-site-specific performative sculptures” with his work as a GIF-novelist for an absurd mash-up that questions the widespread belief that the time of Covid-19 must be inherently productive and useful. As restrictions loosen, a new kind of depression seems to settle in among everyone who made plans to write a book, start a podcast, learn to knit, or become a Duolingo champion.
