What is still regarded as exotic in our day of media globalization, 24-hour news of the world and Google Earth? In an experimental and inquiring way, the videos presented in this programme take us along on a visual, transcultural expedition in search of the exotic. The programme does not aim to find an ultimate proof or meaning of the exotic. Rather a variety of perspectives are brought together to show the multiple understandings and uses of this burdened concept. In each film a form of the exotic comes to the fore, but every time in a different environment and setting.

An overview of the programme including short descriptions of all the video is possible to find on the Project '1975' blog.
