This new presentation in the VideoStudio series offers three videos that explore the formation of identity through cultural exchange. Works by Theo Eshetu, Ezra Wube and Zineb Sedira depict complex European and African interactions in the context of slavery, colonialism and contemporary immigration. In these videos, marketplaces and ports from Germany to Algeria to Ethiopia act as sites for the negotiation of value and identity.

VideoStudio: Meeting Points is organized by Hallie Ringle, Assistant Curator.
