Wendelien van Oldenborgh, Squat-anti-Squat, 2016. Lenticular photographs 120 x 80cm and screening event
Squat-Anti-Squat* is a new video-work that focuses on methods for change in the 1970s and now, starting from an impressive squatting action in Amsterdam by Surinamese immigrants in 1974 and considering current possibilities for resistance, as notions of property and (il)legality have changed considerably. The film will be presented with artist and poet Quinsy Gario in a special event. Two lenticular-prints— or double-focused images—present scenes from the film that stage conversations between social movements of the 1970s and the present-day.
