Autistic Games

On the basis of his sensitive yet distant observation of his autistic brother, the visual artist and director Tobias Yves Zintel explored in his film work »Mental Radio« (2012) the incursion of the radically different, of that which cannot be semanticised, into the sheltered space of the family.
In Autistic Games, Zintel now collaborates with the psychiatrist and author Przemek Zybowski in a renewed analysis of the spectrum that opens up between the poles of »healthy« and »ill«. In biographical detail, the piece gives form to the relationship of a »sick« brother to his family, a portrait of the social figure of the autistic person as an allegory for the statement of the unutterable in current public discourse.
