The video loop Dummy shows Friedl’s failed attempt to buy cigarettes in a pedestrian tunnel. He kicks the cigarette machine. Then a man, styled as a “junkie”, begs without success for a cigarette and kicks him. Friedl’s conceptual approach explores questions of power and disempowerment, for example in the art world, making misunderstandings productive.
