Thuli: Yes, it's nice, let's do it, you know, but what's gonna be the outcome? Are we going to continue?

Daria:  It's important. It's all about that, but

I don't know.

bits and pieces 

work in progress ...

In my visual research I have talked to twelve international artists, activists and cultural workers. Their voices tell stories about cross border activities, migration, mobility, exclusion and everyday life in Europe. The ongoing video work tackles questions around exclusive mechanisms of borders in an artistic way. 

... but people will never stop moving. And artists claim their own territory beyond the concept of the nation state.

A report about my research ...

in collaboration


during my fellowship 

while working as a fellow of kültüř gemma! with the Austrian UNESCO Commission I initiated a project about the big topic “artistic freedom“.

I am looking at artistic freedom through the lens of “international artist mobility/ barriers & exclusion“.
