The Romanians (Live Like a King)

Heidrun Holzfeind (AT 2002, 14:01 min)

Holzfeind’s documentary style video artwork addresses the wider social and political phenomena of globalisation by diving into the fragmented scenes of the lives of Romanian refugees whose lives oscillate between their current ‘home’ in Austria and their original home in Romania. From the harsh working conditions that are embedded in their middle-class jobs to the poverty of refugee camps, the Holzfeind casts a light on the larger totality of globalisation by deciphering the blurred identities of these refugees, and by large, any immigrant that are going through similar, perhaps more poignant experiences around the globe.
