Description

Since the beginning of the Syrian uprising in 2011, refugees have been fleeing the brutality of the Assad regime and searching for new destinations, Munich being one of them. Many asylum seekers arrive by land, crossing unofficial borders, through successive European countries.

Tania El Khoury and Petra Serhal from Beirut-based Dictaphone Groupcollaborated with a group of Syrian refugees who had recently arrived in Munich. They provided each person with a discreet camera for a day, the only instructions being to film their lives in Munich and their favourite spots in the city. Interviews with the refugees work as a soundscape over the footage they created. Audiences engage with the films from metal bunk beds, outfitted with mattresses and pillows.

A part of the 2018 Fringe Festival. Presented with MET Philadelphia.
