'Specimen 1' is a re-enactment of a political speech given by Hitler in 1934 during the Nazi Party Congress in Nuremberg. It was included in the 1935 propaganda film Triumph of the Will by Leni Riefenstahl.
Specimen 1 looks at the subject devoid of context in the act of celebrating and communicating power. This is the first of a planned series of short videos looking at political speeches by the artist.
