Video Superior
3'10



As an intenational video artist Kim Engelen had to react to the news of 5 June 2006; "One on ten Dutch people is racist. They feel themselves superior towards immigrants and feel that Dutch people should not unite with other nationalities." In this video we see Dutch looking people. The camera turns around them, while they follow the camera and observe it. While doing this there is another camera registering them from a slightly different angle in almost black and white. The soundscapes are dark with the echoing sounds of dolphins.
