The German Revolt of 1968. I fake three notes that are supposed to be written by three German protagonists of that year.

Each note is associated with one of the three major orientations: the student movement; the terrorists; and the Communards. The three texts are printed in German national colours black-red-gold.

The notes are accurate in its facts and give an overview over 1968 revolt. But they are composed in a derisive way: After their conventions, attacks and activities, the actors find themselves lonely in their hiding places - not able to find a corcscrew to open their bottles of wine.

In terms of gastronomy, a „Spill Over“ describes the moment when a cork is being pressed into a bottle. .
