This project aims to lead a cow through Brück, and make a film about how the cow experiences the trip. The cow will pass through the central part of the town, and thereby take a walk at about 3 km. On the soundtrack a historical review on Brück’s relationship with cows is heard. Brück is a small town with a population of approx. 3500. Before, when Brück was a part of East Germany, the towns most important occupation was farming, with a large cattle production. Today the town is a modern city with the main street as a traffic artery through town – the facades of the houses are all beautiful and renovated. If you move into the backyards of the houses, it’s interesting to see, that many of the houses in Bruck still have an old cow house or barn attached, which tells the story of the past peasant culture.
