Foreigner for rent
Agnieszka Małek, 2013 | Association of Creative Initiatives ę (Poland)
This video by Agnieszka Małek is a variation on teleshopping. This time, however, instead of vacuum cleaners we have... foreigners. The author was inspired by the experiences of many organisations and institutions working with migrants. It sometimes happens that the media contact them in search of a topic to fill their airtime. Migrants are seen as a piece of news, their culture as an exotic curiosity and their problems are almost completely neglected.
