Commentary
Artists

Propaganda film images of a bomber plane pilot with a leather cap have been edited into the loop of a commercial for Zewa-Soft, airborne tissues as soft as clouds. The image of this male pilot is contrasted with a superimposed ironic portrait of vom Bruch with long, fluttering hair. The pilots are not flying any old planes, rather these are the bombers sent by Adolf Hitler in 1936 to support the Spanish coup under General Franco destroy cities such as Guernica.
