Nur wer die Arbeit kennt, der wird sie schätzen.

The Salon Studio is the headquarters of the Union Produktion film studio for the duration of Emscherkunst 2016. The production team centering on the artists Nicola Gördes, Silke Schönfeld, and Astrid Wilk is making several short films on site. The ideas of these films will be provided by the residents of the Union Quarter. Interested residents can intervene directly in writing scripts and designing storyboards. In the second part of the project, they will also be able to collaborate on filming and play roles in their own films.
I did a short film called Only who knows the work, will appreciate it, which consists of several chapters. Each chapter shows another everyday life situation which is reenacted by the residents who play themselves. A tension between fiction and documentary arises.
