Wed, 9 May, 7:00pm Film Screening with Discussion: “Adopted”

Goethe-Institut , Addis Ababa, 09.05.2012 – 19:00 am/pm
The art project „Adopted“ by Gudrun F. Widlok (documentary film, 2010, 89min) plays with the dominant perception that the rich West gives something to the needy South. The usual game of excess and lack is reversed: Adult European, who are detached from their families, are given godparents in Africa. Initially thought up as artistic fiction, the project turned into reality due to high demand: To this day, more than 150 Europeans have been brought together with families in Ghana.
