Anna Faroqhi and Haim Peretz in conversation with discoteca flaming star (and vice versa).

Anna Faroqhi & Haim Peretz are artists and authors of experimental and documentary films. They have been working together since 2003, both as a team and in individual projects. Faroqhi is also an author of graphic novels. As a team, they create films, design exhibitions,and are interested in participatory forms of creation. Frequent recurring themes are life in big cities, migration, and lifelong learning. Faroqhi and Peretz teach video at the Hochschule für Musik "Hanns Eisler" Berlin.

discoteca flaming star is an interdisciplinary collaborative art group, a group of people who use songs and other forms of oral expression, understanding them as a personal response to historical events and social and political facts. Through conceptual, visual and musical transfers, they create performances, sculptures, drawings, stages and situations whose foremost intentionis to question and challenge the memory of the public, transforming old desires and finding invented pasts, or pasts which never occurred. DFS is the place where the oracle speaks through the non-chosen. DFS is a love letter written in the present continuous, a love letter to thousands of artists.
