The work shows 12 photographs of four dancers. Only in the fast running sequence of these photographs and their constructed order does an artificial, seemingly endlessly repeating choreography emerge. This dance is a metaphor for the constantly, laboriously turning wheel of life, at the end of which death stands as liberation – a memento mori! dance.
Text: from the Kreuzstabkantate by Johann Sebastian Bach.
Dancers: Silvana Lemm, Therese Madeleine Thonfors, Natalie Farkas
Countless small will-o’-the-wisps buzz in this artificial underwater world. They symbolise all the people who drowned between 2014 and 2022 on their flight to Europe. At the bottom of this sea, we listen to the stories of five young refugees from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Ethiopia and Gambia. They talk about their families, their flight from violence, their hopes and dreams.

“The Feminist Border Arts Film Festival celebrates the power of cinema as a creative tool to reflect upon urgent social issues and thought-provoking representations of identity and difference. The festival defines “feminist border arts” as a practice that challenges the limits of conventional representation through telling stories from the edge; threshold visions from the margins that create new ways of seeing, that visualize underrepresented ways of knowing. Selected films revive the promise of cinema, the possibility of film to open minds, create new vistas, and challenge dehumanizing forms of representation.
Located in New Mexico—a state that includes nineteen sovereign Pueblo nations and is situated less than 50 miles from the U.S./Mexico border—the Feminist Border Arts Film Festival is committed to thinking about identity, difference, and liminal experience as well as issues of sovereignty, decolonizing, belonging, and humanizing experiences.

“Mother” is a symbol for “care”. But what does caring mean, what does being a “good” mother mean? Perhaps there are universal criteria that are free of socio-cultural conditioning. In fact, however, motherhood is shaped by social conventions that – viewed over time – have not always been the same.
Inspired by an old family album and a fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm, a story develops here that makes me think.

The finite story of Samia Yusuf Omar. Based on the novel “With Dreams in the Heart” by Giuseppe Catozzella.
“Samia Yusuf Omar was a young Somali runner. Running was her great passion. She trained in the war-bombed and al-Shabaab militia-controlled capital, Mogadishu, despite all the obstacles in her way.
She made it to the 2008 Olympics, where she finished last. She desperately wanted to be back at the 2012 Olympics in London, but conditions in Somalia had worsened. In the meantime, the only possible way to live her dream was to flee. Samia drowned in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Lampedusa in the early summer of 2012.
