Focus Homecoming: Shorts

Artworks move from the kunsthalle to the cinema room for the first collaboration between Göteborg Film Festival and Göteborg International Biennial for Contemporary Art. The videoworks, selected by João Laia, curator of the art biennial in 2023, look at socio-natural formations which manifest possible notions of home. Different conceptions of bodies, communities and kinships embody examples of home, in five artworks that explore ways of belonging.
