Shaving the Baroness

  • 8'
  • Norway
  • 2010
Re-enactment of the 1921 late-Dada/pre-Surrealist short Elsa, Baroness von Freytag-Loringhoven, Shaving Her Pubic Hair by Man Ray, Marcel Duchamp and the star herself, a work that maybe never existed in the first place. But the concept is simple enough and the point still worth making. Meeting the adorable Dunja Eckert-Jakobi also led Berg to her next project, Kopfkino. Screens together with Toyen and Two Women and a Man. See also Kopfkino by this filmmaker.
