to the hildner family
1st of october
a household in which four generations with varying
careers live under one roof. part-time farmer laborer in the vöest
financial adviser retired house wife child.
we were cordially treated and slowly guide through the "nichts tun"
(do nothing) exhibition in the vienna folklore museum with our theme in mind.
the first reactions are largely skepticism and the impossible vision of doing
uncle friedl says no kidding.
little by little, it comes
down to differentiated considerations, and wishes become loud.
i look out the window and see her over there with the bike ride by, then i want
that too sometimes
maybe just looking out the window and watching the cabbage
grandmother says: i've become nothing. i just eat and
can't work anymore. unlike 5 years ago, she smiles about it.
the considerations of course:
will the cows get an utter infection if somebody
else milks them?
will they give as much milk as before?
won't the visiting
workers gather the hay to early? if it is still wet? and the barn is going to
and ... what will the farmers from the neighboring villages say when
they are contracted by the maschinenring (local farmers union) to work somewhere
where the farmers are already there anyway??
