For the past two years, Adrian Schindler has been examining the traces that the colonial past in Morocco has left in Spanish society, as much in cultural production and public space as in the collective imaginary. He is currently developing a film with a group of actors/actresses, researchers, and activists, where he addresses the implication of representation in power relations, while giving rise to a critical reflection on the filmic mechanisms themselves. Shortly after the shooting of the first chapter in Barcelona, and in parallel to the editing, he reflects on the distribution of the roles and the collaborative methodology employed during the production, as well as on the encounters and exchanges that contributed to its development (among others a performance, a round table and a reading group).
Adrian Schindler (b. 1989) deals in his practice with the link between historical events, cultural production, and state ideology, with an emphasis on their effects on subjectivities. Read more about his practice on his website.
