Sarah Dobai - The Donkey Field
The central feature of the exhibition will be a single screen film titled The Donkey Field. Based on sections of a family member’s account of his experiences in Budapest in 1944, the film focuses on the insidious impact of discrimination, persecution, and displacement on a child.
Motivated partially by recognizing the historical resonance of Europe’s flawed response to the ongoing refugee crisis, The Donkey Field aims to reflect on the processes by which dehumanization of a people becomes normalized overtime, implicating not only the authorities but society as a whole.
The exhibition will also feature several new photographic works, depicting places whose pastoral qualities become shadowed by their association with dark episodes in European history.
