An ongoing video project about global justice movements
'In between the movements' looks at the networking that is taking place between global justice movement groups. The project investigates corresponding practices and their influence on theory.
Interviews were conducted on various subject areas. ‘No Border No Nation’ and ‘§129a’ looks at the criminalization of left-wing movements in the course of the anti-G8 demonstrations in Genoa 2001 and Heiligendamm 2007. The situation of the residents near a G8 summit is topic of ‘NOG8’. ‘Transplanted’ talks about the lack of a genuine civil society in Albania. ‘Queer’ shows the necessity of Queer Politics and anti-discriminatory demands. ‘Transversal’ is a little stroll through a socio-cultural center in a search for transversal lines that always cross through new movements and institutions.
Each video as well as its poster is developed in close collaboration with activists from different geographical and cultural contexts giving insights into various perspectives of resistance. In between the movements constitutes itself as an example for collective knowledge production.
The project intersects with recent public debate in Copenhagen about air pollution in the city. In collaboration with Senior Scientist Jørgen Brandt from The National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark a first prototype is developed for making an indicator that can be placed in the city and display local levels of pollution as well as pollution forecasts on individual streets. The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
