tourist

Photography 2011, Video 2012


"Tourist" is a video work addressing absurdity and dystopie of citizenship inauguration in Berlin, Germany. Having a camera hanging around my neck, continuously filming, this moment is apotheosis of bureaucratic metamorphosis from stateless refuge into German and European citizen. Before, during and after the ceremony I am involving diverse ceremony participants in conversations while staying open and curious in all directions these conversations provoke. Trying to outline different coordinates within diverse narratives and anecdotes told it is a journey through multiple and dynamic spaces as stateless cue, receptions, hall of speeches, populist slogans, swears and collective singing.
