Miriam Haile’s artistic practice focuses on questions around migration, urban isolation, and border politics. Often presented within multimedia installations she instigate an interdisciplinary dialogue, with a political landscape, investigating how one might understand moving imagery and it´s archive.
In her resent work she has revisited different methods of examining video archives and looked into how online archives can be understood as a form of new “future” documents.
With a political landscape, cartographies, and affective potential her projects hopes to play a critical actor in the art field of examining and perhaps confronting the viewer/reader on their objectivity and also investigate how one might understand how moving imagery produce meaning.
