7. Visiting Our Neighbors

Passagen (1996)
September 21, 2012 - 7:30 pm

Small or isolated countries have always had a disproportionate interest in the world surrounding them. The key issue in these works is analyzing the observation of “exotic” images, editing and re-editing material of the past and present. Fictional and documentary approaches and reconstructed found footage question social interactions within a 1950s farming community, moral and visual colonialism, the view of foreignness and a collective experience with migrants and refugees. Formally, they function by transposing sounds and images, and aesthetically through the displacement of communities and individuals.
