8. Whose Reality?

6/62 Mama und Papa (1964)
September 22, 2012 - 7:30 pm

These four “choreographed” documentaries play out in the interstices between inside and outside, public and private, visible and invisible, being in control and out of control, and they explore different aspects of the political arena. From a performance to an essay on the status of refugees and illegal immigrants in Fortress Europe, surveillance, public spaces and hyper-real public housing are questioned and traditional family models are undermined.
