The starting point was the installation created by the artist YOOL entitled "The Leviathan", which was set up from September 2014 to January 2015 in the Erlangen City Museum on the occasion of
the exhibition "14-18-14 - Nothing New in the West !?".
Part of this installation was the image animation "Totentanz im 12/1 Takt" (Dance of Death in 12/1 Time), which reflected the murderous events of the First World War, in which statistically a
person died every 12 seconds.
