an Italo-Disco-recreation-horror

Welcome to the age of mental illnesses. The tired society is over-stimulated and hyperactive. The homo economicus marketed himself and silently weeps bitter Prozac-tears. We operate under voluntary restraint and relax in compulsive freedom. Mindfulness is restlessness.

Too much truth, too much untruth, too many expectations, too much data, too much access, too many friends … TRANQUILO. WE NEED TO GET AWAY. SEDATION. WE NEED VACATION FROM VACATION.
URLAND goes on a journey and packs: favorite music, nice costumes, and the father of all; Nietzsche.  Urland. URLAND: SWITCH OFF. URLAUB is a personal effort to reveal dramatic unrest and pass real-time.
Is that true vacation, emptiness?
URLAND looks for the meaning of nothing.
