STAFET explores ancestry as the individual’s determinant factor of identification. Ancestry as the place where images and mythologies of genealogies and cultures are carried on; where ethnicity, religion and nationality are determined; where transgenerational trauma and triumphs are transmitted. Ancestry as the indispensable foundation of our self-perception but also the fatal executioner that keeps us trapped in a predestined puppetry.
We spend our lives trying to reconcile these forces. We negotiate the right to change, development or settlement. We invent strategies for survival in this everlasting and universal conflict zone.
