Contained Mobility | 2004

The video project looks at the present condition emerging from the changes that occur in and around the regulations of movements to Europe with a focus on the sophisticated methods and technologies which have been developed on either side: on the part of the authorities to discipline the movement of goods and people and on the part of the passengers to outwit the restrictions and achieve mobility and security.

Contained Mobility concentrates on the suspended time-space of translocal existences and the politics of mobility and containment. The project looks at the present condition emerging from the changes that occur in and around the regulations of movements to Europe.

The contradictory terms of containment and mobility play with the paradox which we are presently facing. We observe that the stringent measures, which have been devised for Schengen, are being further reinforced in a post 9/11 period. For many migrants it has become virtually impossible to enter the European space in a regular way.

Only the very resourceful and inventive ones will stand a chance to overcome the imposed barriers. Even though many of them would rather choose other venues, they have to recognize that Asylum is the only channel left to enter.
