9 August 2012: Hofen und Malz sind verloren!

9 Aug: Hopfen und Malz sind verloren! from kate hers on Vimeo.

Location: Berlin, Germany, Neuköln

Word or Expression: Hopfen und Malz sind verloren!

Closest English Translation: A lost cause! All is hopeless!

Literal Translation: Hop and malt are lost (meaning, we cannot make beer).

Thanks to writer and curator An Paehuysen and painter Ali Mongo.

So the story is, at this particular Indian restaurant, they don’t serve alcohol. We were trying to reenact the moment when Ali Mongo asked for a beer and was told there was no alcohol. We wanted him to say, “Hopfen and Malz sind verloren,” since he was sad he couldn’t drink there.
