The film Monotony is Nice consists of recordings of a trip through the Netherlands in the late 1960s, alternately filmed by Charlotte Posenenske, her first husband Paul Posenenske, the artist Peter Roehr and the future gallery owner Paul Maenz. Filmed out of a moving car, the landscape appears monotonous, the repetitive succession of rivers, fields and trees only interrupted by electrical masts, bridges and roads. The title of the film, Monotony is Nice (Monotonie ist schön), refers beyond the recordings as such, since monotony, regularity and repetition are also the basic principles of Posenenske’s creative process.
