Una Ciudad En Una Ciudad (Eine Stadt in einer Stadt)
1994, the construction of the new financial center in the heart of Caracas, the capital of Venezuela, stopped, but nobody suspected, that that building would someday be a heterotypic place: the highest squat in the world, which offers shelter to a complex and ambivalent society. The video’s fractal view guides through self-built walls and temporarily held stairwells. Highlighted with a sound collage with news coverage and conversations with residents of the so-called Torre David, Una Ciudad En Una Ciudad gives an impression of the everyday life, the structure of the community and their criminalization from outside.
