The video installation Assembling Past and Present is part of the Blood, Sweat and Tears project. It was created in collaboration with a network of cultural workers and peace activists and transforms the exhibition space into a kind of virtual congress or assembly. The work blends historical images and text (including those from the First International Congress of Women at The Hague, 1915) with statements and portraits captured a full century later, effectively blurring the usual boundaries between protagonists, places and periods of time. This artistic strategy invokes different ways of grasping history while exploring new opportunities and possibilities for peaceful coexistence between various communities.
