It almost sounds real... imitating dinosaur dig sounds with Jochen Jezussek and ghostly grading with Till Beckmann for my new feature, Time Before Land.
In December 2020, the Stadtschloss replica, a.k.a. Humboldt Forum, had its “online opening.” I made this poster for the Coalition of Cultural Workers against the Humboldt Forum (CCWAH) – a group that won’t participate
