Curated by Julia Draganović and Claudia Löffelholz

LaRete Art Projects presents the first video show of the yearly photo festival "European Photography" in Reggio Emilia, Italy. For the 7th edition with the title "Vita Comune" (Common life) Julia Draganović and Claudia Löffelholz have selected a series of videos concerning anthropological questions and single historical moments that reflect upon questions about cohabitation for which it is difficult to find one single answer. How do we create a community, who belongs to it, who is part of our group - and who is not? Criteria for inclusion and exclusion, for which contemporary sociology offers very diverse theories, depend on social, geographical and historical situations that change continuously. The video works selected for "Me, You, We and the Others" represent sometimes possible answers, sometimes questionable hypothesis, moving images that confirm our ideas or, on the contrary, put them up for discussion - in the best case they open up a whole new range of questions.
