The beating took place in Rostock during the night of the major riots, June 2, 2007, Saturday. The involved police officers beat up a demonstrator in a wheelchair. Lizvlx from UBERMORGEN.COM states that "This is the worst double-header scenario i have ever seen, police violence and artistic performance melted together in a unique way, ugly!". "This new action video rocks" says Hans Bernhard from UBERMORGEN.COM, "it demonstrates the exchangeability of violence - our speciality is to deliver an extra portion of violence to already very brutal environments. We overaffirm the Madman theory"
FORIGINAL MEDIA HACK NO 1
Project Web-Site ( * )
UBERMORGEN.COM ( * ) specializes in Media Hacking. Their portfolio includes big time actions such as „Vote-Auction“ and the „digital hijack“ by etoy. The product of such actions is the documentation (emails, logfiles, websites, press- and blog-features). UBERMORGEN.COM captures this self-inflicted mass media storm by digitally manipulating images and texts and rerouting them back into the mass media; and by physically transforming data into foriginal objects (i.e. Paintings, Sculptures, Drawings, Installations). Mazzotti Action is a globally acting Stunt-Team based in Berlin ("V for Vendetta" by the Wachowski Bros and Oscar winning movies "The Pianist" by Roman Polanski and "Das Leben der Anderen" by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck).
