The video brings together police file photos of the Nationalist Socialist Underground’s victims in Germany. Between 2000-2007 this far-right terrorist organisation killed 10 people, 9 of them with a migrant background, mostly Turkish and Kurdish. German government persistently ignored the racist nature of crimes and treated them as isolated assaults. sağ combines portraits of the victims with a voiceover speculating on material details and conditions of the photographs taken.

WET Screening is a free online platform for film and video, collectively curated by the members of WET and accompanied by a conversation with the artist in a form of an audio recording. The conversations will form an archive representing a range of voices within contemporary moving image practices. Our goal is to build a community of international artists working with the moving image, in order to support and disseminate their work.
