Drawing on the manifold perspective of cubist sculpture, Storyboard combines photos of contemporary Rotterdam’s urban spaces with protagonists of Polish documentaries form the 1950’s. By combining these sources, I am fictionalizing these sites and characters; this stems from my interest in deconstructing, re-applying and re-inventing the language of propaganda films from the 1950’s in order to negotiate the current public debate about the phenomena of Polish worker immigration in the Netherlands. To address the contemporary disappearance of the social ideologies that determined the construction and re-construction of European cities in the 1950’s, I follow the living conditions of Polish immigrants with an emphasis on the individual, to avoid stereotypes and the anthropological gaze.
