7/4 2005 — 7/4 2005

The evening will focus on the problems and background of illegal immigration from México to the USA. How did artists of different nationalities approach this theme and which difficulties arise through living an identity in transit as well experienced by many artists. The discussion examines shifts and alterations of self, nationality and identity, by initiating a dialogue between the nomadic artist´s practice and the image of contingency of the migrant/refugee.

Artists invited: Oscar Sanchez (filmmaker) México/Vienna; Enrico Zukerfeld (performance artist) Buenos Aires, Argentina; Jesse Lerner (documentation) Los Angeles, USA; Bernadette Felber (photography) Vienna.

With Tango and good South American music by Christian Oberndorfer.
