WE HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW
It is seen a closed wooden cuboid which is surrounded completely by a fence. The Box and the fence are standing on a raised base plate with four wheels. There is an iron chain attached to one side that can be pulled. A deep voice is heard from the inside of the box that repeatedly says: „What is he building in there? What the hell is he building in there?” This continuity is completed with: „We have got a right to know.“

WE HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW
Zu sehen ist eine von innen verschraubte rundum geschlossene Holzbox, umrandet von einem Zaun. Box und Zaun stehen auf einer Platte mit vier ­Rädern und einer Eisenkette, an der gezogen werden kann. Aus der Box ist eine tiefe Stimme zu hören, die folgende Sätze wiederholt spricht: “What is he building in there? What the hell is he building in there?” Diese Kontinuität wird mit dem Satz „We have got a right to know.“ ergänzt.
