We meet actors, police officers, interpreters, psychologists, communication coaches, together with the artist herself in four video installations. Holmkvist has created a new video work in two parts for this exhibition. In Translation (2011) examines the interpreter's role in politics and in the asylum seeker situation. Other films in the exhibition are: Cold-Blooded Company (2010), In Character, Role Control (2008) and Interview with Saskia Holmkvist (2005).
