Same step-dad

Same Step-Dad is a collaborative video diptych that delves into the profound and often contentious notions of labor and production, examining the intricate role of the body as a fabricator within global industrial frameworks. Through a comparative visual analysis, this project highlights the significant impact of foreign factories on local communities in Mexico and Morocco, focusing specifically on the influence of US companies in Mexico and European companies in Morocco.

In collaboration with local artists and academics, Same Step-Dad juxtaposes the lived experiences of workers in these two regions, revealing the complex dynamics of power, dependency, and resistance that characterize their interactions with multinational corporations. The title, Same Step-Dad, evokes the shared yet distinct experiences of these communities under the paternalistic and often exploitative presence of foreign industrial powers.
