GARĀŽAS / Garages

GARĀŽAS / Garages

The closed microcosm of garage coops, where the socio-economic environment has blended with personal space, provides a step back in time. Men are still boys, but their tinkering is both the trade and hobby of individual entrepreneurs, since self-exploitation as leisure time activity is a time capsule where neoliberalism has enclosed the postindustrial proletariat. Inventors, geniuses, crazy scientists, and men with golden hands – you will find them in garages.

The multimedia artist KATRĪNA NEIBURGA, born in 1978 in Riga, is one of the most noticeable figures in video art in Latvia. She studied at the Latvian Art Academy’s Department of Visual Communications and also spent a year at Stockholm’s Royal Institute of Art. Garages is her debut in film. // Films (selection): Garāžas (Garages, 2016)
