In the last years, their collaborative artistic pratice, which has involved the long-term research, has analized the economies of the visibility in relation with the past and present mobility schemes on the southern and northern shores of the Mediterranean Sea.
Their last projects examines the interwoven migration stories and cinema and shows a counter-memory of the "economic miracle". The work body result reunites film, performative moments, collected documents, architectural exhibitions.
Today they are working on "minor decolonial cinema" and unfinished stories like "histories en devenir", issues also addressed through curatorial works of a series of exhibition, projections and conferences who has revisited the historiography of the expanded field of practices related to the moving image.
