Ursula Biemann, Sahara Chronicle - videos on mobility and the politics of containment in the Sahara, film still, copyright the artist



Ursula Biemann's Sahara Chronicle - videos on mobility and the politics of containment in the Sahara, offers diverse accounts of the experienced conditions of migration. A sequence of twelve short videos.

The piece examines the politics of mobility and containment which lies at the heart of the current global geopolitics and takes a close look at the modalities and logistics of the migration system in the Sahara. Unlike the networks facilitated by lasting material infrastructures such as rails or fiberglass, the trans-Saharan migration network is a vibrant process of spatialization performed by the psychic dynamics of anxiety, fantasy and desire, a web made of obstinacy and vulnerability.

The artist will also talk about the work after the screening.
