Privilege is when you think something is not a problem because it’s not a ­problem to you personally. — David Gaider

THE ASSEMBLY – interviews from the middle of everything is an animated fictional documentary series and short film by Malin Erixon. Based on interviews of people who all meet the criteria: white middle-aged male, with the aim to reveal how they perceive their own position in the world and thereby making visible their (and thus all of society’s) unconscious blind spots.

Satire and seriousness is mixed when documentary audio material meets fictional characters.
