SOUL SEEKERS
de Mokhallad Rasem (IRAQ)

The centre often looks for his asylum seekers for that project, and by this form seekers conscious of the problem of refugees. In the meantime, the need for an initiative of this type has only grown. Therefore, the foreign Mokhallad Rasem chose an unusual approach: he wanted a life in a centre of asylum to a room of expects. His previous life has been interrupted, despite that, his next life can not really begin.
In a state of limbo, the displaced oscillates between the refugees of the past, for who has ‘lost’, and a wish for a new and invisible future that still has to be ‘won’. To many people, feels like a prison, paralysed, but Mokhallad Rasem argues that that fossilized attitude can be capsized. It talks about personal experiences, because between 2005 and 2006 he was to the asylum centre
of Zemst. He thinks that, in this uncertain phase, it is possible to open all the doors to of a new world, a new life. A new soul…
Mokhallad Rasem will live in the asylum centre during six weeks at the beginning of 2017. During this time he and the occupants will create material for a film, which will be used for his new-specific project: Zielzoekers.
