Jens Semjan and Bernhard Lermann explain the world with just 20 significant chronics from politics, law, economy, banking houses, medicine, nature sciences and history of brands and luxury goods. They extract the relevant facts from a tremendous data-mass with the precision of a surgeon to row them into timelines. Unseen cycles, connections and developements become simple and clear at a glance. This point of view offers us new perceptions on our old world and makes history become conceptual art and vice versa.
