Testimony imbues material objects with collective historical memory, reflecting simultaneously on the past and the present. The film becomes a new form of memorial or monument in its durational scale. Evolving over two hours, the narrative consists of a series of video performances in which simple manual acts by two protagonists the Angel of History and the Migrant – such as cleaning, washing the floor, or painting a fence – take on an historical dimension. (Rebecca Shatwell)
