'Bakkar' by Kareem Lotfy - One of different small video-screens made by Kareem Lotfy for the Noord exhibition. By: Robert Keil

Kareem Lotfy spent hours with people from Noord that normally stay unvisible and never come to the center of attention. His interviews aren't lineary stories, but give space to lives that are lived unseen, in another language. He shows this elusiveness in his work by witholding from judgments and journalism - just by being together with the people.
