“Nadija Mustapic’s exhibition is constructed around the video work I Don’t Know About the Rest of the World, but Here… shot in the area of Marin Headlands during the artist’s residence in the Headlands Center for the Arts, and is structured as a three-channel video installation.
The author uses scenes of the historical remains of the defense architecture to speak not only of the history of the place and the history of warfare but also of the recent culture of fear and warfare and defense models, through the relationship of the natural and constructed military landscape. In the words of Nadija Mustapić “it is a disconnect between the consuming of a leisure/hiking/wellness landscape and its military history. Today I cannot stop thinking that these hikers in this particular landscape with bunkers are an upside down version of the actual situation of migrants scattered across landscapes in search of shelter“.” (B. Benčić)
