Situated between documentary and fiction, the presented film We will meet in the blind spot by Maj Hasager relays stories of the Esposizione Universale di Roma (EUR) district in Rome. The EUR was built during the fascist rule of Mussolini to represent a »Third Rome« but wasn’t completed until the 1960’s, when it was eventually finished under very different purposes of urban planning. Through encounters with the local Filipino community centered around a church in EUR, personal accounts and stories are compiled, that are often lacking within the Italian and European debate on migration. The following performance, Bifurcating futures, and record release, Bifurcating Soundscape, relates to the research into totalitarian architecture as part of the expanded project We will meet in the blind spot.
