Memory of the Land


Memory of the Land




CATALOGUE TEXT
In this collage film, the Palestinian artist Samira Badran demonstrates vividly what it means to be confronted by an Israeli checkpoint. A breathtaking accumulation of chains of command, claustrophobic architecture, constant surveillance and the guards’ arbitrariness demonstrates how structural and physical violence combine to become a spiral of aggression. A disconcerting animation, oppressive in its abstraction.
