Wild Oases (2015)
by Karin Bachmann

Let us change the world: This is what I promised to my inner wild horse. But it did not yet happen and I am slowly but surely reaching adulthood. However my horse doesn’t want to become a square horse far apart from dreams. In an ultimate attempt to escape petty- bourgeoisie, it is calling for me to live according to my ideals again – and to look for a wild oasis. Thus the wild animal hounds me to the land of sold out utopias, in the Californian cradle of the counterculture and coerces me to free love. Still, no wild oases far and wide. Can the world be saved or is everything just a horse fantasy?
