Because the present is a product of the past and thus of history, there is no such thing as an unburdened present, neither in life nor in art. This ironic meaning of "The Unburdened Present" does not stop with Armin Mühsam’s art but extends to historical events and fates of people whose lives are dramatized in programming that accompanies the show.
