Those Who Go, Those Who Stay

  • Austria
Audio Tracks 

Rain on a window pane, a fire truck, a tomcat with innumerable offspring: it is an intentionally unintentional gaze that allows for chance encounters, stories, and memories that leads Ruth Beckermann across Europe and the Mediterranean. Nigerian asylum seekers in Sicily, an Arab musician in Galilee, nationalists drunk on beer in Vienna, the Capitoline Wolf, and three veiled young women trying for minutes to cross a busy road in Alexandria. Threads, cloth and textiles pop up like book marks in a textual process of movement, of travelling, and seeking refuge. Those Who Go Those Who Stay is a story of being on the move, in the world and in one’s own life.
