An ongoing video project about global justice movements
Austria
'In between the movements' looks at the networking that is taking place between global justice movement groups. The project investigates corresponding practices and their influence on theory.

Interviews were conducted on various subject areas. ‘No Border No Nation’ and ‘§129a’ looks at the criminalization of left-wing movements in the course of the anti-G8 demonstrations in Genoa 2001 and Heiligendamm 2007. The situation of the residents near a G8 summit is topic of ‘NOG8’. ‘Transplanted’ talks about the lack of a genuine civil society in Albania. ‘Queer’ shows the necessity of Queer Politics and anti-discriminatory demands. ‘Transversal’ is a little stroll through a socio-cultural center in a search for transversal lines that always cross through new movements and institutions.

Each video as well as its poster is developed in close collaboration with activists from different geographical and cultural contexts giving insights into various perspectives of resistance. In between the movements constitutes itself as an example for collective knowledge production.

For the Garage festival 09 Free Soil have conducted a site specific research project investigating the environment of the Baltic Sea.

We created an alternative archive of political and historical events that have occurred in the Baltic Sea region, especially Stralsund and linked these with the sea’s responses. The impact of Industrialisation, population growth and political changes has resulted in climatic and environmental changes recorded in the sea. Nature retaliates by creating new forms, one of the most significant being the spread and growth of toxic Blue Green Algae or “phytoplankton”
