No sympathy for the devil

Krzysztof Wodiczko, Goście (Guests) detailPolish Pavilion, Venice Biennale, 2009

Projections create the illusion of floor-to-ceiling frosted glass windows on the walls as voices are having conversations related to issues of immigration. While the ‘immigrants’ in the videos are marked as ‘guests’ by virtue, the viewer is put into the same category by entering the pavilion, and Venice as a whole. 

"Refugees driven from country to country represent the vanguard of their peoples." - Hannah Arendt, "We Refugees", 1943
