Cavusoglu, Ergin (2009) Liminal crossing. [Film/Video]

Full text is not in this repository.


Liminal crossing was commissioned by Ludwig Forum für Internationale Kunst, Aachen in 2009. The film is a re-enactment of an episode, which took place during the migration exodus of ethnic Turks from Bulgaria to Turkey in 1989. The scenes were filmed at the border checkpoint between Bulgaria and Turkey and show an upright piano being pushed and pulled by hand between the two borders leaving Bulgaria and entering Turkey. The procession passes through the buffer zone between the two states, a no-man’s land, that becomes liminal and redefined, creating a sense of demarcation, dislocation and reinterpretation.
