A partire da L’attesa: conversazione con Dagmawi Yimer

Dagmawi Yimer, Farah Polato


Starting from L’attesa (Waiting): a conversation with Dagmawi Yimer. The recent work by Dagmawi Yimer, Waiting, realized with Shahram Khosravi in the context of the international research project Wait based at Bergen Universty, is the starting point of a conversation that questions the notion of time as a map. In particular, the interview explores ‘time in between’ as a relevant space that allows one to build up a personal map through which the subject repositions herself/himself in a new context. In so doing, ‘time in between’ is related to the act of appropriating language: the language of cinema but also, in a broader sense, the multiple languages that enable the subject to enter and constantly reshape a relationship with the world.
