Abstract

The purpose of this research is to generate video art documentary proposals within what this study calls Performative Documentation of Knowledge 2. Passing Testimonies is a multichannel installation that uses multiple technologies to interweave images, testimonials and sounds. Assembled from eight choreographed projections, synchronized with a six-channel sound work, the project documents, in essay form, passages and testimonies of people in a refuge state. Issues such as crossing, traces, dreams, waiting in the refugee camp and the uncertain future are all part of this work. It is at the intersection between
two contexts – political art and linguistic hybridity – that we can understand Passing Testimonies. The thematic interdisciplinarity  nspired by the theoretical
bases of the fields of art, politics and sociology is formally mirrored by the freedom with which this research mixes technology and documentary art.
