    Is there a paradise? Where can I find it? And how does it look? Reports about the longing for other worlds. From the Garden of Eden to Cyberspace. "...Like a post-colonial nomad, Banze traveled from southeast Asia to the Pacific in search of paradise, and so repeated, as it were, the movement of the real history. In his luggage he carried the modern artefacts and promises of salvation, media equipment, recording equipment, videotapes, films, texts and musical instruments. In almost incredible showings, concerts, screenings and performances he presented by himself the views and sounds of his - that is: the Western - world on paradise, and made them collide with the cultural gestures and forms of expression he found on the spot. At the same time he collected the opinions from native people and other nomads in search of paradise - on God, on the origins, on that what holds the world together and makes it drift apart."
