ERNA'S VIDEO & MEDIATION

Panel debate Friday June 13, 7 pm

In his video titled "Erna's Video", the Norwegian artist Karl Ingar Roys analyses the production of documentaries whose aim is to inform the population of the less developed countries in Europe and worldwide of Norwegian tough immigration requirements. The films were conceived and commissioned by Erna Solberg, the former Minister of Local Government and Regional Development in the Norwegian government. Some independent media from the Balkan region also took part in their production. Karl Ingar Roys' work consists of showing the video and organizing discussions with the members of the film crews taking part in Erna's project, as well as with the local audience.
In “Mediation”, a new dual video work made in
Rotterdam, 2008, Karl Ingar Roys leads us into a reflection on the aftermath of the controversial politician Geert Wilders release of his anti-muslim film “Fitna”. In the video “I am sorry” he has collected a variety of videos posted on the internet, made by Dutch people as a response to the negative image Wilders have painted of the Dutch. The second video “Alles is oke” initially seems to function as a mediation but also slowly forces us in to question the current political & social situation in Holland.

The project is carried out with the support of the European Cultural Foundation and the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Serbia
