FOREIGNERS OUT! SCHLINGENSIEFS CONTAINER is a thrilling, insightful, funny chronicle and reflection of one of he biggest public pranks and acts of art terrorism ever committed. Austria 2000: Right after the FPÖ under Jörg Haider had become part of the government, the first time an extreme right wing party became state officials after WW2, infamous German shock director Christoph Schlingensief showed a very unique form of protest. Realising public xenophobia and the new hate politics in the most drastic ways possible, he installed a public concentration camp right in the middle of Vienna's touristic heart, right beside the picturesque opera where hundreds of tourists and locals pass by daily. And it was no concentration camp you had ever feared to return from the old times, but one that cynically reflected our new multimedia culture.

a brilliant documentary film, a really interesting work
I think Auslaender Raus! is a brilliant unusual documentary film based in a very original idea that works out in the best way. In my opinion, it changes the documentary concept to something more thrilling (using interactive media art, public pranks, in a great ironic level), it´s not the outsider view of things, it´s the action itself and it brings a little (or not so little) but intense seed of revolution to us, against this global, violent, weak system we are part of nowadays. Some measures are needed, this film shows that it is us who have to make responsible for the measures that have to be taken, and that art and minds are one great way to do it.
