No other band has mastered and satirized the style wars of post-post-pop like Bilderbuch. No other filmmaker has captured this attitude on film more coherently than Antonin B. Pevny. Four current music videos about four motifs permanently present in pop:

Jung und schön is an elegy to pop’s eternally unrivaled youth cult; Ankathie Koi fragments everyday life as crisis; in Plansch, Bilderbuch searches for freshness and style, with a lining of irony; and finally, in Maschin, pop’s great promise of happiness can be dreamed and broken: “I play life” as pop’s parentheses and general slogan.
