Housemaids and their parallel worlds
An Exhibition and a film
Housemaids and their parallel worlds is a contemplation about the life of migrants from Asia who work and live as housemaids abroad. How can they achieve their desire to lead meaningful and self-determined lives while confined by their work environments? How can they adjust to a new beginning in their home country after a forced departure?
The Goethe-Institut Cyprus presented the the exhibition Apples for Sale by the German photograph Rebecca Sampson and the documentary film Together Apart by the anthropologist and filmmaker Maren Wickwire as a joint art project.
The extensive research for the project “Apples for Sale” was funded by the Robert Bosch Stiftung in cooperation with the Literarisches Colloquium Berlin and within the context of the program Grenzgänger China – Deutschland
