Klaus vom Bruch and Ulrike Rosenbach collected one thousand kisses of all shapes and sizes. Kisses of love, kisses to take one's leave, formal kisses and kisses of death... They edited these film kisses together into a rhythmic and changeable mise-en-scene which is accompanied by various pieces of music. An electronic counter keeps the viewer informed of the rising number of kisses. The artist's face also appears on scene as he watches as a voyeur. The kisses also exist in language form by the repeated sound of the word 'Küsse'. This 'anthology of kisses' reveals something of the chemistry of kissing but also demonstrates the various codes and conditions that determine the content and form of this ancient act. And yes, there really are one thousand.
