A postmodernist use of quotation in video art. Scenes from the Eisenstein's Battleship Potemkin are supported by modern music and ends with the artists' contribution: a scene in which a heart is sliced on a plate supplemented by an inscription: care was taken in disinfection and safeguarding the viewer's health. A quotation is added to the graphic sign and the performance becomes part of the video surface.
