Today's borders show an increasing gradient in terms of wealth and technologies to protect it. At the same time, political entities try to construct a positive, youth-oriented public image. Under the title EURO BEATS, this film reflects the European great power politics ironically in its various facets - the beats initially representing very real physical beatings, furthermore comprehensive strategies of political economy, and finally the youth-friendly soundtrack to the corporate identity of the company Europe. The video's amalgamated soundtrack by Alfred Banze, and its disco light effects, forge a bridge from dance music of the fifties, when the people who are in power today were born or growing up, when the European Union was anticipated and preformed as an economic partnership of convenience, to contemporary digital dance music and data processing in sophisticated border technologies.
