In times of daily apocalyptical news due to the pandemic situation the film speculates on a post-COVID19 future. Alternative economic concepts such as degrowth suddenly appear not so utopian any more. The film’s pictures, recorded at Autostadt Wolfsburg, are combined with a narration about deceleration and idleness. The spoken words are based on the »Manifesto of Futurism« by Filippo Tommaso Marinetti from 1909. About a hundred years after its first publication the artist revised the eleven paragraphs: His »New Futurist Manifesto« inverts Marinetti’s praise of machinery, acceleration and industrialization.
