In 2001 the artist Klaus Schrefler [KaRaSu] was asked to contribute to an ARGUS event, Dom im Berg in Graz, Austria dedicated to sexually abused children and youth since his work has dealt with different forms of violence for many years. He created an eleven minute double screen video (including the intense sounds of Rudl Vogtenhuber´s Filter) with the intention of simultaneously showing two perspectives in which the viewer could identify with, that of the perpetrator or of the victim. While the piece contains no graphic actions, it takes the audience through a natural progression of events leading to the repitious rhythm of abuse. The loop reverses to emphasize the reflection of the present in relationship to the past symbolizing the continual cycle of violence as the precondition for the excuse of perpetration.
