Abstract [en]

The film-sculpture has the form of a house that appears to be sinking into the ground. The bottom side consists of an LED screen where short film A Place in Europeis shown. The film takes place in a forgotten corner of a big city, a place that has become the home of job-seeking migrants who have fallen through the net of European free movement. The narrator Thomas has for three years been sleeping under a loading bridge. Now he’s about to be evicted. He represents those who want to do the right thing: work, support their family, live a worthy life. Nowadays, old poverty is forcing many to become nomads in European cities. We want to set up the House in public places in the central parts of cities to make this situation visible and to include those who have hopes for a better life to become part of society.
