paradoks brings together video installations, short films and fiction films of local and international artists who work on the intersections of film, art and activism and whose approaches and aesthetics operate at the edges of documentary filmmaking. In their works, facts are modified by fictionalised, journalistic and investigative techniques like image processing methods and re-enactments.

The exhibition consists of a selection of multichannel video installations which are grouped into two thematic areas. While «Arrival» deals with the different realities of migration and (non)arrival in German society, «Precarious Bodies» explores the working conditions of contemporary artistic production.
