GROUND TRUTH: THE AL-ARAQIB MUSEM OF STRUGGLE. in collaboration with Forensic Architecture


The festival VERMÖGEN/ FUTURE OF DEMONSTRATION commissioned Manu Luksch to direct the LIVE MULTI-CAM ARTISTIC BROADCAST (OKTO TV) and EVENING DRAMATURGY of:
 
GROUND TRUTH: THE AL-ARAQIB MUSEM OF STRUGGLE by Forensic Architecture.
 
This transitory museum is a collaboration with the unrecognized Bedouin village of al-Araqib and dedicated to the ongoing struggle for their ancestral land in the Naqab Desert, Israel. A collaborative mapping involves aerial photography from kites  and historical research. With the local families Forensic Architecture has produced a body of evidence that assembles historical reading of the silver salt grains of the 1945 RAF aerial images of the area, through the pixel grids of contemporary satellites to the floating point-cloud particles of our low flying kite surveys.

It explores the notion of demonstration and its political, technological, pedagogical, and aesthetic capacities as means to imagine, collect, weave, embrace and share narratives, techniques and affiliations of resistance.

FUTURE OF DEMONSTRATION / VERMÖGEN takes place at REAKTOR, Vienna, online and on OKTO TV 
from October 31 – November 11, 2017.
