A video (DV, color, 51 min), forms a central element of the exhibition, and will also be shown at thematically related events and alternative video festivals. It confronts the hegemonic model for representation of ”border crossing services” and migration. Based on conversations carried out in Germany and Austria with immigrants and persons involved in the political left, the basic theme was separated into four sections for analysis and critique: ”Who is allowed to migrate?,” ”Celebrating and excluding,” ”About border crossing services” and ”Against racism.”

A representative of the activist group ”Taxistas” describes how taxi drivers in Germany are criminalized as ”smugglers” for transporting illegalized people. The section ”Celebrating and excluding” is a ”short report” about the latest war machinery for border security, eagerly presented by soldiers at a festival of the federal armed forces at the Heldenplatz in Vienna on the Austrian national holiday. In the section ”About border crossing services,” a conversation with a leading border patrol officer in Frankfurt an der Oder shows contradictory arguments which are used to try to legitimize racist mechanisms for exclusion. The digital video premiered in March 2001 at the Diagonale, the Austrian film festival, in the framework of the events series ”Politik bilden!” (”Form Politics!”).
