On the occasion of the exhibition "COMMON AFFAIRS. Revisiting the VIEWS Award - Contemporary Art from Poland "(21.07-30.10.2016), thirty children and youths between the ages of 10-14 have asked themselves: What is the language of the city? What stories do we find and what sounds do we hear? But how do you actually shoot a documentary? Where to put the camera? Together with the film experts Anna Faroqhi and Haim Peretz, the children exchanged perceptions and went in small groups with the camera on a voyage of discovery in the environment of the KunstHalle. On the editing computer and with voice and music recordings, the films were completed one day after shooting it and presented a month later in the large cinema hall. A project in cooperation with the Kino Arsenal.
