bacha posh

Two-Channel-Video/ -Sound

The two-channel installation „Bacha Posh“ narrates through atmospheric pictures of urban landscapes and close observations the life of an 13 year-old afghan girl which is raised as a boy in Afghanistan and who consciously lives all the duties and liberties of her role. The tradition “Bacha Posh” means that girls are dressed as boys and have to fulfill the function of a male family member since very young. The two Screens stand for the outer and inner space, the public and the private life.
