      Balkan Shadows

      Artists

      Zeyno Pekünlü

      Description
      “Balkan Shadows” is a video work formed by a collection of shadow pictures from the Balkans.

      “While traveling in Balkans I was very impressed by the fact that the history of one country always overlaps with the history of another. The independence day of the one country is probably the mourning day of the other. The shadows of history invisibly cross the borders and bind the countries together in a strange way.”

      The making of Balkan wars

      Artists

      Personal Cinema

      Description
      The making of Balkan wars: The game is a Personal Cinema project primarily focused on the social and cultural issues within the Peninsula and on the creation of a network between artists, art critics, writers and curators from South eastern Europe. It presents new media works created by the 51 participating artists that investigate the Balkan territory and way of life. In the real-time of global networks, and in video games, the simplification of cultures and history is itself a form of violence. The Making of Balkan Wars: The Game is intended to counteract the sensational spectacle of war presented by the media by deconstructing stereotypes, focusing on the distortion of identities, and revising the dominant logic of explanation.

      We Shall Overswim

      Artists

      Borjana Ventzislavova

      Description
      Can the European identity be defined? What parameters and elements dictate our understandings of a 'European identity'?

      The specific questions on which the work is based are about the subject: 'at home'. What does it mean to 'feel at home'? What or where could be 'at home'? Does a geographical location or national belonging today define 'at home'? Is it possible that identity can be affected by nationality in times of global transformation and migration processes? These issues, seen from the perspective of the migrant, are central to this work.

      Empirical Data

      Artists

      George Drivas

      Description
      „Empirical data are data that are produced by experiment or observation“ (The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language)

      Empirical Data is a film that deals with someone’s relationship with an environment that is “alien” and often hostile in a sense. The script comes from the personal experience of David Malteze, an actor of Georgian origin who nowadays lives and works in Greece. Τhe film reproduces on a fictional basis, his arrival as an immigrant, and his trajectory from entering the country to taking up acting, an event that eventually led to his professional recognition and subsequent “integration” into the Greek society. Malteze himself plays the main part.

      Battles of Troy

      Artists

      Krassimir Terziev

      Description
      “Battles of Troy” is a study of the internal economy of today’s globalized cinema production, seen through the eyes of the lowest unit in the hierarchy of movie making; the extras. The focus here is the Warner Bros motion picture Troy (2004), and more specifically the secret life of the extras in the movie. The project is based on the fact that 300 men forming the ’specialized‘ extras in Troy are Bulgarians, who have been flown to the Mexican coast to spend 3 months in training and shooting massive battle scenes which is the background to the feats of arms of Eric Bana and Brad Pitt.

      Landscape-Tones

      Artists

      Anna Lascari

      Description
      Organized in omni-positioned vignettes, “Landscape-Tones” documents an intersection in central Athens, Greece, where immigrants from the Balkans, North Africa, the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent congregate to socialize and conduct business in their new homeland. In slow motion, vivid images of buses intersperse to illustrate the transporting of dreams and desires, while the animated alphabet and the voiceover express both the desire of those who immigrated to Athens, and Lascari's proclivity to return to her original homeland.

      The Great Excursion

      Artists

      Raycho Stanev

      Description
      This interactive installation contains the memories of Bulgarian Turks, hundreds of thousands of whom were expelled from Bulgaria in 1989. It is a shameful, hidden chapter of European history, almost unknown in the West; it is a reminder of what happens when DNA rather than our shared humanity becomes the focus of attention. The Great Excursion gives a fascinating and disturbing insight into what happens to a community when politics overtakes reality. Is it where you are from, or where you are at, that matters?

      Artists

      Jenny Marketou

      Description
      The video is comprised of a database of video clips, which have been captured online from “youtube” and other social networks, using an application that has been specially designed to randomly capture online and to manage the videos data into a metadata of moving images. Each streaming video features “neighborhoods” from a diverse range of geographical locations, where the past years have witnessed a wave of global unrest in which the architecture of violence, protests, fear, militant and police repression, control and brutality have transformed into “war zones”.

      Alper Şen

      Description
      Since 1985, more than 2,000 civilians have died and 5,000 civilians have been wounded because of the landmines and other explosive materials in the southeastern region of Turkey. Currently, it is suspected that approximately 1,000,000 landmines are still buried in the ground in this region.

      This video installation was prepared from interviews with civilian victims. For future generations, these landmines will continue to be the most visible proof of poisoning the idea of coexistence in this region, of which we are supposed to be proud.

      Ivan Moudov

      Description
      During his six months' stay in Switzerland, Ivan Moudov started his own waste removal business. Not unlike a garbage mafia group, his enterprise exported household trash to Germany, contributing to the cleanliness of Swiss territory. Moudov collected his clients' garbage bags from their homes, loaded the bags into his car and crossed the border. On German territory he disposed of the bags in the containers of motorway rest areas and then drove back to Switzerland. For 10 Swiss francs per bag, Moudov’s clients not only bypassed local waste disposal laws but also participated in an artwork.

      Foxes

      Artists

      Can Altay

      Description
      Can Altay's “Foxes” video is a neighborhood investigation about ‘becoming-animal’. Becoming-animal does not mean imitating an animal, nor identifying with it. Becoming-animal is about obtaining molecular particles from existing forms; it is about establishing movement and resting, speed and slowness relations that are getting as close as possible to what is happening between those particles, and that are mediating the becoming. It is a process of desire; it is the creation of a principle of neighborhood. Altay’s video goes through the process of becoming a fox while intending to record foxes visiting human habitations to find food. This is not a video that imitates becoming a fox, but the invention of a metaphor.
