The Logbox is a digital harddisc-jukebox containing an archive of 60 videos by 67 filmmakers and artists, which can be selected by the viewer using simple buttons to navigate through an on-screen menu.

During May and September 2006 the Minority Logbox was presented within the project „Küba: Journey Against the Current”.
Traveling by car up the Danube River from Rousse to Vienna and towing a caravan converted to function as a mobile videotheque we were screening its films and videoworks at each venue of Küba’s journey.

This video archive contains films and videoworks that have been collected in advance to this projects representing multiple communities in the eight different countries involved in the journey, featuring ethnic, religious and linguistic minorities, but also non-homogenous groups marginalized due to other factors.

The films have been individually selected in order to reflect the cultural, geographical, political and social situation of these communities and individuals, widening the focus on transnational social groups often overlooked by administrative descriptions and thereby deprived of legal status.
