"On September 11, 2001, an American journalist wrote a letter to his childs soccer coach who had not cancelled practice that day because he wanted to offer a bit normality for the children on this day: Dear colleague, I know that you meant well and wanted to show your sympathy. But it could be that this just isnt possible for a European. There is more at stake here than just mourning for the victims and their families. What happened today has completely shaken our national self understanding. We Americans find ourselves in a collective stake of shock. Our self understanding as the secure and final bastion of freedom and democracy is gone. The American way of life is now a thing of the past. Dont be angry, but in moments such as these one doesnt play soccer with children, one takes time alone to reflect.
The German translation of this letter (published in the Berliner Zeitung on 9/13/2001) was the basis for a book of collages by Urk Giten.
Jrgen Eckloff and Stea Andreasson collected audio material from the media between 2001 and 2004, which dealt with September 11 and subsequent events that heavily influenced the collective consciousness. The result is a very intensive Audio-Collage that shows the shock, the hysteria and the preparation for (a) new war(s) after September 11." [label description]
