Check out Ben Perry's video of two twins dancing to the sound of D.A.F., an influential German electropunk band formed in 1978. The name stands for "Deutsch-Amerikanische Freundschaft" or "German-American Friendship."
Which of the two small children is supposed to represent America? And which one is dancing like a German? The twins are are tied up and tied together to symbolize transatlantic interdependence, I guess.The video appears to be some highly sophisticated metaphor or a very post-postmodern take on transatlantic relations. I am not sure, what the message is exactly, but I will ask Ben, who I will meet tomorrow.
