Window with a view

Window with a view is an empathetic experience which aims to re-humanize the question of recycling, consumption, overproduction and above all, the hypocrisy of North-South relations. This project is about Agbogbloshie, an illegal and deadly landfill in the center of Accra, where electronic waste from several European and American states are sent.

We could speak of a political essay. The intention is to make the workers of Agbogbloshie visible; and to connect them with people in the countries where the garbage comes from. In addition, European consumers will have a showcase on how certain European states and companies manage waste and the reality of recycling their old electronic devices.

This video installation is a linear and binary narration resulting from the exchanges between the participants of the experience, a sharing of looks and humanity despite the alienation report which seems to bind them.

Moufouli Bello Bénin
Promotion Jonas Mekas

Born in Benin, where she lives and works, Moufouli Bello is an artist who questions social constructions. Although she has a legal training, her interrogation of social inequalities and questions of identity orient her more towards the study of ideological structures, that is to say, traditions, religions, cultures, socio-economic policies, geopolitics, and international power dynamics and relations and their impact on the processes whereby individuals are formed. Her research puts the emphasis on the notion of social justice in relation to the human condition, on race and the situation of women, and on identities, all of which evolve in keeping with society itself and its tribulations.
