SPOTS are short audiovisual interventions into various facets of the NSU Complex. Some of them are meant to mobilize for the Tribunal. All of them address the blind spots in the process of working through the NSU Complex. They throw spotlights on the racist circumstances that make right-wing networks and their crimes possible in the first place. SPOTS regard aesthetics as political action. These aesthetics counter the dominant visual politics and their visual fixation on the perpetrators, and the media’s disinformation about the NSU complex. They reverse visibilities, represent gestures of resistance, formulate questions and accusations. And in doing so they look to initiate a wider debate in society.
They were shown at various cinemas, cultural institutions and festivals: such as Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt; documenta 14, Kassel; Forum Expanded Ausstellung, Berlinale; Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin; Studio for Artistic Research, Düsseldorf; SAVVY Contemporary Berlin; M1 Hohenlockstedt; Heimathafen Neukölln; The Ludlow 38, New York; Filmfestspiele Cannes; Internationale Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen; dokumentarfilmwoche Hamburg; L´Alternativa Barcelona; Dokfilmfest Kassel; Ethnocineca Wien; Villa Leon, Nürnberg; Stuttgarter Filmwinter
