“Kabul, Jenin, Tehran...” (with Comuna under construction)

Recent video work addressing issues of political and documentary representation, often overlooked by mainstream media. Focused on sites of conflict and resistance--the Colombian armed conflict, postwar Afghanistan--as well as the politics of transparency and representation--the Palestinian refuge camp, the Consejo Comunal.

The series includes films by Bodil Furu and Beate Petersen (Norway), Dario Azzellini and Oliver Ressler (Venezuela/Austria), Reza Haeri (Iran), Carlos Motta (Colombia/U.S.), and the Otolith Group (U.K.).

Theatre of Peace

The project is concerned with presenting the strategies deployed by artistic interventions that make visible the asymmetric conflict situations occurring in various places throughout the world. SCHAU-PLÄTZE – an exhibition intended to present artistic work and interventions which work towards conflict resolution. A diverse range of media, channels and forms of cooperation will be used to heighten the project’s visibility and that of the initiatives it showcases.
