Ordnung muß sein

The three channel video shows me whilst performing push-ups and in the process of assembling and dissembling an AK5 automatic rifle. It also shows me where the camera is following the movement of traditional inspection of soldiers. In all parts, I wear a black dark suit, white shirt, a red handkerchief and a red, white and black striped tie; the assembling and dissembling of the weapon occurs with a green sack totally covering my face and head. The title is taken from the signs with the decree “Ordnung muß sein,” in German, which were displayed at the Swedish ranger regiment where I completed my military service between the years 1998–1999.
