Final Touch


Where life ends, the work of Christine and Markus begins. "Finish" takes part in the daily work of a thanatologist duo. For a lifetime the body is supposed to be a means of expressing all interpersonal relationships. Consequently, to prepare the body for the last meeting means among other things to help cope symbolically with the watershed of death: A smile soothes the bereaved, chemicals stop the putrefaction process, the beloved teddy bear of a decedent does not leave her alone on the way to the crematorium furnace. Through unexcited words and pictures the washing, shaving, preparing and fitting the body is experienced as handicraft.
