UN-HOME / MOVING STONESPRINT THIS PAGE
Architect and visual artist Filip Berte is known for his project Eutopia, where he screened Europe as political entity by shaping it into a house in which every room reflected a different facet of the continent. His current project ‘Un-Home’ continues that critical creative practice and focuses on the mechanism of inclusion and exclusion of uninvited newcomers in our Western society. With the use of a camera obscura and a hidden digital camera, Filip installed a critical ‘moment of auto-reflection’ in several asylum centers. During Working Title Festival Filip will looked back on this first phase of the project with an interactive exhibition. During Performatik he will present new material that he generated during a weeklong stay in the refugee center Klein Kasteeltje in Brussels.
