Being, increasingly is a Gesamtkunstverk centered around a 3-channel video installation that combines video with spatial and optical elements. It is a three screen film portrait of the researcher Hilma Granqvist and the time she spent in two societies before the second world war: Finland and Palestine. Filmed in FInland and Palestine, Being, increasingly seeks to interpret Hilma Granqvist’s experience of these two cultures, which in different ways came to be her home. The interpretation is based on Granqvist’s own writings, and on what was written about her. The project first and foremost evokes a sense of belonging that is independent of notions of nationalism. Through Granqvist, Långström is able to pose interesting questions about belonging and outsiderness, along with the creation of nations’ identities.
