INTERFERENCES 05.09.2019 – 26.09.2019 Curated by Malve Lippmann and Can Sungu
The individual and economic freedoms within the EU have fundamentally changed the labor market and the living conditions of its people. While some benefit from open borders and the free movement of capital, others encounter asymmetric power structures and exploitation. Some people choose to migrate on account of unemployment and poverty, in the hope of leading a better life in another country. Yet even those that stay develop ideas and ways of asserting themselves within the system. Economic hardship can become an opportunity, but at the same time it serves as a breeding ground for right-wing populism throughout Europe. INTERFERENCES: these are moments in which growing inequalities become visible. In seven film evenings, the series draws attention to stories in which individuals search for ways of dealing with them.
