Scarred Land
Inas Halabi, Eve Andree Laramee, Susan Schuppli
An artist film selection by Kyveli Mavrokordopoulou
ARTisBOOKshop, Pelsterstraat 27-29
13.00-17.00 (+ upon request during the bookshop’s opening hours)

Framed as an extension to the talk Scarred land: an invisible history of the bomb, this screening brings together three short films on land occupation and the nuclear industry. The films combine humor and documentary aesthetics and take us to three different locations where nuclear colonial legacies persist and linger, Gabon, New Mexico and the West Bank. Weaving past and present, landscapes and people, the artists showcase the entanglements of nuclear and colonial practices in ways that need to be recovered.
