Water & Coltan (VR/360)
360 / Virtual Reality (VR) • 52m
Water & Coltan deals with the consequences of mining on landscape and communities in West Germany and DR Congo. While WATER sketches posthuman near-future scenarios for the former coal mining Ruhr area, COLTAN transports its audience directly to the places of exchange and work of women in artisanal coltan mining camps in South Kivu. Two sides of one and the same violent phenomenon: an extractivist approach to natural and human resources with long-term consequences for the environment and society.
