The sunken homeland; visiting a strange place, and the certainty that we are not alone. The rhythm of one’s origins and the identity of the surroundings. ECHO is about how childhood reverberates; about complicated relationships, and a departure to pastures new.


Merlin Flügel was born in 1987 in Naila and studied at the Offenbach University of Art and Design (HfG). His films include the short animations HOW TO DISAPPEAR (2011), ECHO (2012), the video installation PERIPHERIE (2012), and RULES OF PLAY (2018).
