Joanne Richardson works in different media and disciplines – video art, installation, theory, activism – considering all of them equal forms of discourse suitable for specific contexts. Her videos subvert documentary conventions and question the relation between images, truth and historical memory. She is especially interested in post-socialist spaces and in the impact of globalization on old symbols and ideologies, traditional customs and the rhythms of everyday life. Her work attempts to create maps of the urban unconscious: the hidden territories, marginal identities, and unspoken beliefs that exist beneath the surface of the city.
