The works at Gallery Ernst Hilger play with the Freudian principle of pleasure and reality, showing bodily activities in the context of sports and professional physical training, where pure pleasure can be reached only to a limited extent.

That which usually seems pleasurable to look at actually entails extreme physical hardship and a constant fear of failure. The exhibition consists of video works in which bodies are forced to extremes in order to live up to the roles they have to fulfill in various social settings.
