BODY OF TRUTH

Evelyn Schels
DE CH 2019    52' 95'

Synopsis

Artists Marina Abramović, Sigalit Landau, Shirin Neshat & Katharina Sieverding have been politicized by experiences with war, violence and suppression and integrated them into their work, using the most personal feature available: their own bodies. We accompany them on an emotional journey, re-experiencing the conflicts that have shaped their consciousness. All protagonists originate from different cultures, whose struggles epitomize the grand conflicts of our time.
