Description

NECROPOLIS explores one of the biggest human catastrophes of our time: the deaths of thousands of migrants who have lost their lives in an attempt to reach Europe. In this performance lecture the Israeli-Belarusian artist Arkadi Zaides seeks to map out a digital archive, a virtual city of the dead entitled NECROPOLIS. Like drone pilots, the performers take the audience on a death trip via Google Maps, zooming in on the many graves spread all over Europe. In this way, the project insists on the right for the dead to be identified and laid to rest and at the same time poses the question: what is our notion of collective responsibility?
