Video: Uriel Orlow on Back to Back

Uriel Orlow's new exhibition Back to Back opens here on Friday, marking the first time he's shown recent films Remnants of the Future (2010–2012) and Plans for the Past (2011–2012) together in the UK. 

Both films centre on towns called Mush – one in Armenia and one in Turkey. Here Orlow discusses what drew him to these locations and how the projects relate to concerns in his wider practice about history, memory, representation and haunting.
