Everything we can describe at all could also be otherwise.
The work consists of seven short video essays that take up a few paragraphs from Ludwig Wittgenstein’s Tractatus Logico Philosophicus, first published in 1921, with other texts by the Austrian philosopher. Short sequences, fragments of amateur films depicting a single moment, a banal, everyday gesture, constitute the material that Forgács moulds to engage Wittgenstein’s theories on logic, language, reality and representation. A philosophical film and a key to Forgács’ archival cinema.
