Screening of recent video work by
Anastasia Kolas

Composed through the angle of the Berlin housing crisis, Anastasia Kolas‘s Natural Causes II addresses dispossession through the lens of existing and emerging theories of cohabitation. The work is a continuation of Natural Causes I, created for a 2015 exhibition at Ў Gallery of Contemporary Art in Minsk. Alongside scripted and improvised scenes created in collaboration with the participants in Minsk and Berlin, Natural Causes II becomes a site to process archival materials and personal items inherited by the artist.

With the support of the Beauftragte der Bundesregierung für Kultur und Medien.
