Florence Lazar, a french artist, reflects within her films and installations how political and social conditions intervene into the media of their representation and how they develop new images and spaces. At Künstlerhaus Florence Lazar will screen a selection of her films that deal with the post-war period of former Yugoslavia. In their concept and her films point out how micro-situations generate a specific political space and enable a more sophisticated and personal description of political events. Subsequently there will be a discussion between Florence Lazar and Astrid S. Klein.
