This book presents, through a series of works produced between 2016 and 2017, a reflective look on, on the one hand, mental illness and depression and, on the other hand, refugee status in the current context. The concept of exile is both thought of from a geopolitical perspective, as it is interpreted metaphorically. With reference to the language of the documentary, the video-essays on display methodologically explore the interview as artistic practice and kinematic territory, creating space for empathy and allowing the construction of intimate and psychological portraits.
