My favorite word is „NEIN“. According to my parents, this was my first word. „NEIN“ is liberating. „NEIN“ helps you getting shit done. „NEIN“ frees up time and energy to spend with things or people you love. In the mid-nineties, I joined a weird cult, mostly made up of people who say „NEIN“ quite a lot. This is their story. This is the interim result of a long term project, spanning about 20 years.
