Julian Rosefeldt


7 August 2004 - 30 October 2004

Asylum is a nine screen video installation by Julian Rosefeldt. Each screen shows a different film sequence with images and sound choreographed to create an emotionally charged experience for the viewer

Rosefeldt’s use of theatricality results in a series of beautiful scenes set in exotic and unusual locations. These contrast vividly with ideas of deprivation, emphasising the vulnerability of asylum seekers. The installation is a bold and disturbing work, which encourages the viewer to explore their own response to asylum.

Presented by BALTIC in collaboration with the Henry Moore Foundation Contemporary Projects and MW Projects. Asylum was produced with the generous support of the BMW group with additional help from the Bavarian Film Fund, ARRI Film & TV and the Goethe Institut.
