An van. Dienderen was commissioned in 2000 by the KunstenFESTIVALdesArts to make the film Site, een topografisch portret van José Besprosvany, based on the testimonies of immigrant artists, as part of the project D’ici et de là-bas/Van hier en ginder (From here and there). What’s identity? To what extent does origin determine the work of an artist? An van. Dienderen analyses the matter by means of a visual anthropological portrait of José Besprosvany. This choreographer of Mexican-Jewish-Slavic origins tests out his multiple identity through the personal trajectory of his work. The mechanism of cultural exclusion proves to be active in the arts as well.
