What is Utopia?
Ursula Biemann's videos explore actual, psychological and engendered border territories, proposing a redefinition of such boundaries by the physical movement of women and their daily lives.
Quirine Racke and Helen Muskens' documentary blends fact, fiction and television commercials to tell the story of six couples' dreams living in the Walt Disney-constructed town Celebration.
While Ingeborg Jansen makes an extraordinarily sensitive account of a boy named Guido who'd rather be a girl named Nina.
