Roland Albrecht gives new life to German tourists who visited Hotel Dajti during the Socialist period. For the duration of the exhibition feedback 1989, they are »revived«and acommodated there there once again as paper puppets. The artist gives them a voice – they are telling their stories and why they could travel to Tirana. The line balancing between fiction and nonfiction is kept blurry. One of those persons is Sepp Mayer, born in 1946 in Tettnang, South Germany. In 1969, he joined the Maoist party of Sweden. He was a great admirer of Karl May and wanted to visit all the places that the writer mentioned in his novels. He could only travel to Albania (the Schut, Teufelsschlucht) as a member of a Communist delegation. In this room of Hotel Dajti he spent his first and very passionate night with his later wife Tiana. Today both live happily in Goteborg, Sweden. They have three children.
