The Rebel Body

Video Still, 2018
Made in collaboration with Shoghig Halajian and Silvia Federici

The Rebel Body takes the murder of Anna Göldi (1782), the last European witch as it's point of departure and follows the history of witch hunts and their resonance for contemporary persecutions of subjects considered deviant from the social order. “Landscape-as-witness” is the conceptual core of the film. The idea posits that the ghosts of human rights violations are preserved in the landscapes that surround us, warranting deeper investment into the material make-up of place. This work is scheduled for completion in 2019 and made in collaboration with Silvia Federici and Shoghig Halajian.
