Premiere July 2 2010 in Ringlokschuppen (Mülheim)


Founded in Antwerp in 2003, the art collective Berlin creates hybrid works combining documentary practices and video installations. After the “Holocene” series which drew portraits of cities, they chose the Zollverein in the Ruhr region, an industrial site turned cultural venue and a symbol of the region’s renewal. Their multi-screen installation shows the real estate interests underpinning the project, mixing fiction and reality.

Zifzafa, is an arabic word to describe a wind that shakes and rattles all in its path. Here, it becomes the title of a performance of artist and researcher Lawrence Abu Hamdan, that enmeshes sonic composition, video game engines and spoken word, to immerse us in the heart of a movement to resist green colonialism in the occupied Syrian Golan heights.

In 1947, the trial of German playwright Bertolt Brecht took place in the United States in front of the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC), responsible for combating communist activism. It was here that Brecht wrote a declaration which he was forbidden to read out. The minutes of the trial, as well as this declaration, constitute one of the axes of this exuberant show.
