LIBIA CASTRO AND ÓLAFUR ÓLAFSSON - WAITING FOR MY SOUL

ÉCRAN D'ART - SCREENING

Libia Castro (1969), from Spain, and Ólafur Ólafsson (1973), from Iceland, are drawn to the new global phenomenon of transculturalism, and the mobility that enables. They enable distinct and sometimes conflicting approaches to transform each other and open up new readings of themselves when combined. Lobbyists engages with the functioning of the European Union, examining some of the questions raised by the recently-emerged role of the lobbyist. Caregivers presents a spectrum of one particular group of migrants – the Ukrainian women who work as live-in carers for the elderly in Italy. Opening up the experiences of migrants trying to claim asylum in Europe, Avant-garde Citizens consists of the personal stories of eight migrants, three of which are shown in this programme. Presented against an incongruous background of the Dutch landscape, these tales are both moving and disquieting.
