Heimliche Bräute. Eheliches Glück. [Backdoor Brides »Marital Bliss«] (2009-2020)

»Heimliche Bräute. Eheliches Glück.« is part of the Series »Copy and Erasure«. In this case, the starting point is a movie* on a VHS tape, I found at a flea market. Following a scientific transcription technic, I copied all dialogs and oral phenomena by hand and  deleted all spoken words afterwards.
