[Subnormal Europe] is a work commissioned by the Münchener Biennale in co-production with the Zentrum für Kunst und Medien Karlsruhe.

At the request of the European Commission, a singer assumes the task of generating exact replicas of the milestones in History of audiovisual recording. The only condition is to produce them live in the course of a recording in front of an audience. With the help of a sound engineer, she will try to fullfil the task, which is not exempt of a chimerical component. In the meantime, she will discover the hidden intentions behind her selection process, as well as the true genesis of the whole [Subnormal Europe] project, far beyond the contract she signed when she accepted to take part in the production.
