stills from: Witnessing as a method of getting through gateways
First, one becomes an observer, then a mediator. Witnessing provides access to information about the realities and fictions on borders, territories, and the currencies and values to which bodies in these zones are subjected. Madeleine Ruggi and María José Crespo bring together their separate information processing within their artistic research by exchanging ideas and working methods in an audiovisual performance presentation. The presentation navigate through different ways of collecting information, and the translation of found material as research.
