With Pelzig on the bench

Episode 1: F***cking Covid-19!

This episode will be about the mortifications of the Covid-19 pandemic, which challenges us not only virologically but also psychologically and calls everything into question: our claim to freedom, our way of life, our self-image. But does this situation also offer opportunities?
Pelzig straps his self-made friendship bench and a mobile punch set to his old men’s bicycle and cycles off – hard on the edge of the current traffic regulations – to listen and ask questions. Is it business as usual now, or is this a chance to reinvent ourselves? What would the future have to look like after Covid-19, if it is to heal what the recent past has done to and in us?
