'The Female Fool', is a visual composition that combines various documentation takes of a performancework which in German is called 'Die Eulenspieglerin'. The work includes a interesting text composition written by the artist, which leads the action like a red thread. It refers to a well-known german mythological figure whose function was to hold a mirror up to the follies of others with his merry pranks as a fool or jester would do. This work as a performance-videoart piece shows the artist as being caught in various different worlds, using various different paths in order to finally realize the meaninglessness of action and determination.
