Raum für Projektion presents
AFTER THE CRISIS Festival
// Date: Friday, October 19th - Sunday, November 4th
// Venue: General Public, Schönhauser Allee 167c, 10435 Berlin
Since Europe is facing a major financial and economical crisis we were thinking about Argentina which went bankrupt in 2001. Many people in Argentina lost everything and economy had to start all over again. Since we will find ourselves soon in a similar situation, we wanted to know from our friends in Argentina: How was the impact of state bankruptcy on their lives?
Most people we know in Buenos Aires work in the creative field. We asked if the crisis influenced their choice of profession. Now with the distance of ten years from the crisis: How do they value the influence of this economical desaster on their lives?
Before the survey in Argentina, we did a series of interviews in Berlin and Warsaw. We asked about the worries and expectation regarding the upcoming crisis. What expect young and middle aged creative people from their near future? Do they care about a mighty state bankruptcy or is the crisis something abstact, only happening in mass media? Do they have questions to the Argentinian people, who already experienced state bankruptcy.
From these series derive the video works "Before the Crisis" (Europe) and "What will be after state bankruptcy" (Argentina). They are the starting point for the "After the Crisis Festival" - an artistic answer to an upcoming social catastrophe.
