berlin: been there / to be hereFear11 de septiembre

The video Fear is based on an associative chain of terms such as “virus”, or “migration”. Uttered by the artist herself, the terms suggestively build up an atmosphere of threat and xenophobia. In her work, Aravena Abughosh works through her own experience as a migrant as well as historical events in Chile, her home country, and Palestine, her mother’s home, and the aspects of collective thought and collective amnesia.
