Hodošček, Maja - Promised Land
Video available only in physical archive
Artist: Hodošček, Maja
Title: Promised Land
Duration: 00:10:04
Year: 2010
Genre: Documentary video

A static camera is showing the artist preparing onions for goulash, while the voices of men in the audio recording are commenting on the best preparation method. Still cutting the onions, the men start to explain the levels of migrant worker's exploitation in European Union. They are describing the unfair working conditions, 12 hours shifts, bad living situations, miserable earnings and the history of seasonal migrations in their family. The artist does not expose them, but rather gives them voices. At the very end, she shows a number of pictures taken after the conversation.

From the video: "Sound material in the video was recorded with 15 out of 149 workers, who came to Slovenia from the Balkan region to work in a construction company Gradis. They were all fired because the company went bankrupt."
