Newsreel 63 – The Train of Shadows

2017

 

Spatial film installation: video, book and series of photographs.

Installation The News belongs to us! consist of a video, book and a series of photographs. Newsreel 63-The train of shadows tries to position and understand a particular image – a shred of video taken with a mobile phone on the once famous Belgrade - Ljubljana rail-line, where refugees now travel not in couchettes but between the train’s wheels. Newsreel 63 drifts into a visual investigation of railways and explores its historical, social and political narrative.

 

Publication The News belongs to us! follows the structure inscribed in the newsreel form and brings together scholarly texts as well as literary and visual elements, and focuses on analyzing the state of current work in the newsreel genre and on places and instances of particular interest and importance. Edited by: Nika Autor, Andreja Hribernik, Ciril Oberstar and Andrej Šprah.
