Havarie

March 3–May 31, 2018
Goethe-Institut
100 University Ave N Tower, 2nd Floor

Havarie traces a complex network of political, geographic, and affective relations orbiting around a visible centre: a three-minute YouTube video of a tiny boat jammed full of refugees attempting passage to Europe. Stretched to feature length (90 minutes), each of its frames displayed as a discrete object, the visual material accumulates a density of meaning as the audio track becomes populated with a cast of voices, including passengers on both crafts—the refugee boat and the luxury cruise ship from which the video was shot.

Presented by the Goethe-Institut Toronto in collaboration with the Hot Docs Festival, Images Festival, and Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival.
