With Bis Zum Tod the team of Nya Rampen, Institutet and Markus Öhrn is completing a triptych dealing with the western middle class nuclear family structure: If Conte d’Amour (2010) described a story of vertical stepping down into the psychotic cellar of romantic love, while We love Africa and Africa loves us (2012) dealt with an outsourcing projection of inner chaos on a far away, imaginary continent, this third and final piece is dealing with love as a power of negation. Love becomes not only a paradox of identity formation, but also a death drive mechanism of self-destruction inherent to the psycho-logic of the family.
