tourist

Photography 2011, Video 2012


"Tourist" is an autobiographical video work addressing absurdity and dystopia of citizenship inauguration in Berlin, Germany. Having a camera hanging around my neck, continuously filming, the work cuptures a moment of bureaucratic metamorphosis from a 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. Trying to outline different coordinates within diverse narratives and anecdotes it is a journey through multiple and dynamic spaces, stateless cues, receptions, speeches, populist slogans, swears and collective singing.
