This year's installment of Houston's CounterCurrent Festival will feature two video installations by the Lebanon-based Dictaphone Group, a research and performance collective that creates live art events based on multidisciplinary study of space.
The two video installations on display in Houston tackle different aspects of displacement, refuge, and urban space, taking on the experience of individual Syrian and Palestinian refugees. Both installations are showing every from 12pm to 8pm, 18-23 April 2017. Admission is free, but reservations are required. Below are brief descriptions of each instllation, including location and a URL for additional information as well as reservations.
Stories of Refugee (Match Gallery, 3400 Main Street)
Stories of Refugees is a video installation. The footage is filmed by Syrian refugees recently arrived in Munich and given cameras to film a day in their life. The footage is overlayed with the oral history of those persons' journeys to Munich from Syria as well as some of their life experiences in Syria and Germany. For more information, including reservations, visit http://www.countercurrentfestival.org/project/stories-of-refuge/.
Camp Pause (Brandon at Brasil, 1709 Westheimer Road)
Camp Pause is a video installation. The footage features the oral history of four different people in the camp, each of a different generation, ranging from one of the original Palestinian inhabitants that was displaced in 1948 to one of the children in the camp. Through these oral histories, these individuals reveal the multi-layered histories of the camp, along with their relationship to the adjacent sea.
