Europlex

Ursula Biemann and Angela Sanders

Europlex (Ursula Biemann / Angela Sanders, 20 min. 2003) tracks distinct cross-border activities through the Spanish Moroccan borderlands and seeks to make these obscure paths visible. On their repetitive circuits around the check-point to the Spanish enclave, the video follows in three borderlogs the smuggling women who strap multiple layers of clothes to their bodies, the daily commute of "domesticas" who turn into time travellers as they move back and forth between the Moroccan and European time zones and the Moroccan women working in the transnational zones in North Africa for the European market. Ursula Biemann was born in Switzerland in 1955. She studied art and critical theory at the Instituto de Bellas Artes, Mexico and the School of Visual Arts, New York and undertook the Whitney Independent Study Program in New York (1988). She currently lives and works in Zurich, Switzerland. Born 1974 in Zurich, Angela Sanders is an ethnologist and video producer.
