Screening Berlin
Gilbert Hage

Each year, as tourist vacationers, tens of millions of humans yield to an extra conditioning: they follow
the directives of a guide, the rhythm of a group, and are instructed cursorily in the doxa on various
countries turned venues. Under the pretext of anticipating their needs, desires, and even their whims,
they are dissuaded from any independent choice. In a sightseeing boat during a guided tour of Berlin,
Gilbert Hage resisted—while fixed to his seat—by means of photography the concomitant insidious
screening of Berlin. The result, Screening Berlin, is a number of moving encounters in the form of
chance compositions of landscapes and people.

Je crois maintenant, à la lumière de ce cheminement artistique, que la vie est une naissance continue
de notre être intérieur.
