Susanne Bürner’s work conveys suspense and excitement. Arguably, it places more importance on what is not shown in an image or film than on what is, using emotion and atmosphere to allude to what is happening in the space that the audience cannot see. 50.000.000 CAN'T BE WRONG (2006) focuses on the relationship between a star and his fans. Its title refers to Elvis Presley’s 1959 album 50,000,000 Elvis Fans Can’t Be Wrong: Elvis’ Gold Records Volume 2, his best-selling compilation album. Bürner shows footage of fans at a concert, and although the films are from concerts given by Elvis, all traces of the performer have been removed, making the film an in-depth study of the audience.
