Phantasmagorical Horizon (2013) by Jeronimo Voss refers to the Laterna Magica projections onto smoke or moving clothes. To be found at fairs after the french revolution these projections were featuring ghostly imagery of revolutionaries such as Danton, Marat or Robespierre. Voss‘ movie starts out with an interview about the phantasmagorical theatre of the 18th century to further develop into a montage of todays glass and transparent architecture, that represents post-modern design as an expression of late-capitalism.
