Damla (23) is an art student who goes each day to beg on the streets alongside the Romá woman Bianca, with whom she gradually develops a friendship. ”If she has to sit like that, then we must actually all do it. And in art, you can change on the small scale what you really want to change on the large scale,” says Damla when explaining the project to her class at the Academy of Art. Damla´s work starts as a performative art project, which is heavily discussed among her classmates and teacher. Gradually, the situation develops into a ethical and political crisis for the student, who struggles to justify how she can continue her project facing the social inequality outside art school. Time Passes is a fictive story, but shot in a documentary style.
