Library Shelf Location 18.JUST
Publication Date 2021

Jesper Just’s immersive video installation ‘Intercourses’ first appeared in the Danish Pavilion at the 2013 Venice Biennale. The film is set in a suburb of the city of Hangzhou, China, which is built as a full-scale architectural copy of parts of the French capital of Paris. In contrast to many other replicas of cities around the world, people actually live here. As the film follows three African men moving through the city, Chinese signs and towering skyscrapers clash with the artificial Haussmann boulevards and a smaller version of the Eiffel Tower. Using poetic and sensuous images, Just thematises highly relevant subjects, such as a sense of cultural belonging, globalisation, and alienation.
