ALMOST WITHIN REACH "In Memoriam", 2021

HD-video (B/W), 46:53 min.

Through a window with a veil and curtains on the side, one can vaguely guess a very small boat on the sea crossing the screen. This uninteresting 51-second film is followed by a 45-minute long generic: a list of 33,293 people, unknown or identified, who died in the Mediterranean or somewhere in a European country between 1993 and 2017, trying to enter Fortress Europe or because of Europe‘s immigration policies.

All this happens in front of our windows, but these dramas have become insignificant and almost disappear from our „veiled“ perception.
