In »One Step Forward, Two Steps Back«, Johanna Tinzl and Stefan Flunger intervene directly in the village's order, as embodied by the church steeple and its clock. They seem to outplay space with time. The new »clockhand«, which originally was to have been attached to the church steeple, is now on a hill that is clearly in line with the steeple. It is a freestanding sculpture, a kinetic object, and a spatial and temporal construct that simulates a concrete situation or rather contrasts with it via repetition. This can mean both Reinsberg and the big wide world.
