The animated dinosaurs of Hollywood cinema meet the petrified ghosts of colonial science. A protagonist encounters mountains and paleontologists on both sides of the American Frontier. The story ends in the middle.

Anna Zett makes videos, writes texts and performs experiments that deal with the tragicomedy of science and technology. With a background in philosophy and academic research she is now working across the disciplines of cinema, radio, drama and dance. Playfully engaged with the afterworlds and underworlds of modernity, her artistic practice tries to rely on voluntary vulnerability as much as it relies on historical inquiry and an experimental setup. She was born in Leipzig in 1983, lives in Berlin and shows her work mostly elsewhere.
