From today on until February 15, 2015, KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin presents the video installation NOW EAT MY SCRIPT (2014) by Mounira Al Solh.

In the work the artist engages with the moment where fragments of history and biography meet. She takes the transit of a sacrificed lamb in the trunk of her relative’s car as a starting point to reflect on the exchange of goods and food between her mother’s family in Syria and her family in Lebanon during periods of conflict.
The film mixes past and present, reality and fiction and invites to reflect on the representation of violence and the dilemma for an artist to register a trauma in real time.

Opening tonight, from 5–7 pm:
Mounira Al Solh: NOW EAT MY SCRIPT
Dates: 7.12.14–15.2.15
KW Institute for Contemporary Art
Auguststrasse 69, 10117 Berlin
