Peter Zorn, initiator and manager of the EMARE programme as well as co-founder and board member of the Werkleitz Society, presents selected video works and documentations of artistic projects from 20 years of EMARE productions associated with the topic “Conflict Zones”.

Among the works to be shown are the documentary from an intervention „Zaun schärfen“ („Fence Sharpening“, 2010) by Leopold Kessler, which focusses on the fence situated at the border between public and private space. Furthermore there will be presented current works by Wachter & Jud, who develop specific tools, to uncover dispositifs related to power politics and to give a voice to the excluded.
