A film by Felix Kiessling and Marietta Auras
Cape Nordkyn and Tarifa, 2017
This short experimental film documents the artistic intervention of artist Felix Kiessling questioning the concept of borders and cartographies.
‚Endpunkt Europa‘ juxtapose two dramatically different ends of Continental Europe: Cape Nordkinn in North Norway and Tarifa in Spain. While the journey to the north end proved challenging due to the cold, untrodden lands and white nothingness, the journey to the south revealed obstacles of bureaucratic nature. Islas de las Palomas, Tarifa’s south-end peninsula, appears as a dystopian amalgam of off-season surf tourism, ancient history of fortresses, and a high-tech frontier for the current migrant crisis.
