PALMS. Visions of the good life. A dream, a hope, an escape from everyday life. With candles and ashtrays in the shape of palms or a glitter palm in an ice-cream sundae, we take a bit of it home—an admission that we dream a dream of great happiness, combined with a genial petty bourgeois mentality.

Ulrich Gebert

Amerika
„Amerika” shows the working conditions of immigrant workers during the orange harvest around Valencia, Spain, focusing on the day-to-day realities for the people who are involved as well as the system they are working under. The title refers to Franz Kafka’s last, unfinished book and as such covers the issues Gebert would like to address: the romantic notion of the promised land, the longing for a better life and the complex history of migration including it’s harsh realities in the form of exploitation and slavery.
