Open Class. "Performing the border".
A video documentary
on the situation in
Ciudad Juárez, by artist Ursula Biemann,
Switzerland. A video essay set in the
Mexican-U.S. border town Ciudad Juarez,
where the U.S. industries assemble their
electronic and digital equipment, located
right across from El Paso, Texas.
“Performing Borders” looks at the border
as both a discursive and material space
constituted though the performance and
management of gender relations. The video
discusses the sexualization of the border
region through labor division, prostitution,
the expression of female desires in the
entertainment industry, and sexual violence
in the public sphere. Interviews, scripted
voice-over, quoted text on the screen,
scenes of sounds recorded on-site, as well
as found footage are combined to give an
insight into gendered conditions inscribed
in the border region.
Director Ursula Biemann, Switzerland.
