Why here?, 2015

Outside the central market of the city of Livorno, residents originally from the area or from abroad are asked why they live there. Some are fleeing war, some are there to study, some for work, some for love. This video is an element in the installation Why Here? exhibited in the central market of Livorno. The installation also consisted of the video, My Favorite Plant and the publication, "Come le politiche agricole dell'Unione Europea influenzano l'economia dei paesi Africani" and 7 tables of produce whose origin are not from Europe but who are not considered essential in European cooking. Like the tomato, for example.
