NOW SHOWING

Check out featured artists in the new issue of Wigged.net:

Paivi Hintsanen's The Book of Days.
"The Book of Days" asks questions about time and origin, and about
living now in this time. The sense of history is around us but we can't see it close enough; the world is full of places we haven't visited, cultures we haven't met but which we have learned from schools, books and media. This is richness but also a loss; when nearly everything is somewhat available, the endless information flow turns out to be just scratches on the surface.  Knowledge and information are changing into confusion. 2000. Finland.  Visit the "Now Showing" page at http://www.wigged.net


Agricola de Cologne's A Virtual Memorial.
A memorial project against the forgetting of the holocaust and for humanity. A collaborative project.  2000. Germany.  Visit the "Now Showing" page at http://www.wigged.net


Bob Barancik's  Saved By Wallenberg.
This video combines dramatic testimony by a survivor of the Budapest Ghetto with archival photos of the last days of Nazi terror.  It honors the memory of Raoul Wallenberg, Swedish diplomat and humanitarian, who saved over 100,000 Hungarian Jews from the Holocaust.  2000. United States.  Visit the "Now Showing" page at http://www.wigged.net
