Realities is a video documentation about artists who live on the Canary island Lanzarote or come from there.
The question which accompanied me during the preparation was which possibilities have artist on the island today, to help giving shape actively towards the diverse changes for a living society. Which possibilities arise for the social and political forces to incorporate artist in the future creation. Because the island Lanzarote can look back in the 70s and 80s at a positive cooperation between the government and the artist Cesar Manrique, a focus also lay on the question to what extent contemporary artists are allowed today to cooperate initially at an equal position.
