Satellietgroep, European Alternatives and Framer Framed together explore the fringes of Europe. The program evolves around the makers and their artistic practice while presenting their work.
The first edition is an evening dedicated to Moldova. Borders between countries are changing and at the same time countries themselves are also changing. With the current turmoil in Ukraine shows how relative borders and states can be. History gives and takes. Through the centuries, Moldova was intermittently not directly connected to the Black Sea, an independent principality, part of the great Roman Empire, Dacia, the Ottoman Empire, Great Romania, Russian Empire and the Soviet Union.
This evening we screen the film LAND LOCKED Maarten de Kroon (premiere) and is followed by SHOES FOR EUROPE, a film by Pavel Braila. This film was shown at Documenta 11 and has given Braila international reputation as an artist.
Both filmmaker Maarten de Kroon from The Hague and artist Pavel Braila from Chisinau, Moldova will be present to give an introduction to their work.
