Obećana zemlja, Maja Hodošček

(video, 2010.)

„Obećana zemlja“ je video koji je Hodošček napravila 2010. godine zajedno sa svojim komšijama – radnicima na građevini koji su emigrirali iz zemalja bivše Jugoslavije, i koji su u trenutku snimanja živeli i radili u Sloveniji.

Članstvo Slovenije u Evropskoj uniji označava prosperitet i razvoj, nudeći netačnu sliku realnih ekonomskih i političkih uslova. Slika Evropske unije predstavlja glavni razlog zbog kojeg ljudi sa teritorije bivše Jugoslavije odlučuju da ostave svoje porodice i traže posao u drugim državama.
U Sloveniji, ovi ljudi su eksploatisani na razne načine.

Video „Obećana zemlja“ adresira problem kroz neformalne razgovore tokom ručka između Hodošček i radnika.

Promised Land, Maja Hodošček

(video, 2010)

Promised Land is a video that Hodoscek made in 2010 together with her neighbors – construction workers that had immigrated from former Yugoslavian countries, at the moment of filming living and working in Slovenia.

Slovenian EU membership signifies prosper and development, delivering an imprecise image of the actual economic and political condition. The image of EU frames the reasons upon why men from ex-Yugoslavian territory decide to leave their families and search for work in another country. In Slovenia, these men are being exploited in many ways.

Video Promised Land addresses the problem by approaching it through an informal conversation that took place during lunch between the workers and Hodoscek.
