The Democratic Set - Video Retrospective

Part of "NO LIMITS"


permanent admission 5.+7.11., 19:00–23:00, 6.11., 18:00–23:00

“The Democratic Set" is a residency model for creating short films and performances. Back to Back Theatre explores the belief that all people are, in principle, equal and should enjoy social, political and economic rights and opportunities. Disturbingly obvious and tantalisingly strange, "The Democratic Set" is a rapid series of short live performances and screen-based video portraits created in collaboration with communities all over the world. As part of NO LIMITS, 26 short films will be shown in one exhibition for the first time.
