Die Kinder vom Friedrichshof / Child of the Commune. 2009.


Дети Коммуны / Die Kinder vom Friedrichshof / Child of the Commune.
 The commune of Otto Muehl, the acclaimed Vienna Actionist, was one of the most controversial artistic and social experiments of the Seventies. In the countryside, on the compounds of the Friedrichshof, mutual sexuality, common property, the connection of happening and body art as well as the consistent removal of any permanent relationships should serve as the ideal foundation for this project. The most ambitious aim of this Austrian commune was Muhls third generation project/Child production which aimed to create a completely new human being. Twenty years later, in summer of 1991, Muhl was arrested for child abuse and the community dissolved. The company's experiment was a dramatic failure. Through the eyes of these children, the film looks back at the community and examines what has become of the children of this utopia. 
Director: Juliane Grossheim.
