In, Diesseits von Eden, jenseits von Gut und Böse artist Claudia Czimek plays with evident delight with the common elements of the biblical narrative of the Garden of Eden. Roles that are firmly anchored in the Christian culture are swapped, others are added, and new relationships are established. With her nose flute interpretation of the legendary hit song by Nino de Angelo, Czimek shows us paradise as an eternal place of longing that—like this catchy tune—we just can’t get out of our heads. The karaoke video invites you to unabashedly bare your soul like the musicians in “Adam’s Costume” and to sing along energetically.

*1975 in Graz/AT, lives and works in Upper Austria
