Admission to Paradise at 3€20, 2008

Video, 12'

Linz’s Parkbad public swimming pool is a paradise accessible to everyone for an affordable 3.20 euros. Edith Stauber’s film portrays it as a democratic model of a Garden of Eden, inviting associations ranging from the temptations of the Land of Milk and Honey to Hieronymus Bosch’s “Garden of Earthly Delights,” interrupted only by the annoying ringing of cell phones.

*1968 in Linz/AT, lives and works there
