Ana Adamović (RS) We Refugees (1493 - 2016)

video installation, 2016

The video installation We Refugees has as its base the text of the same name by Hannah Arendt of 1943 dedicated to the persecuted and destroyed European Jews. Re-reading this important text today, when the greatest refugee crisis in Europe since the end of World War II is in full swing, the work deals with the issues of war, intolerance, refugees, responsibility and community.
