    In this case taking place means changing places, a complete and mutual
    transformation, as is seen in the eternal contrast between bios and thanatos. In the video changing places becomes a moment of identification, favored by the ambiguity of a date, 1949 which is the only element two people have in common, since one of them died and the other was born in that year. – L Viola
