B) defamiliarisation
removal of a familiar,

a familiar can mean (dictionary) 'a spirit or demon supposed

to come to a person', so probably a relief.

This is a compilation of a news photo and the announcement of the anti-muslim movie Fitna made by the Dutch member of parliament Geert Wilders.
The newsphoto show Afghani's burning a Dutch flag. Something very unfamiliar for Dutch people.
Even more unfamiliar is the removal of the spirit in Holland of tolerance and understanding. It is becoming an us or them-mentality.
Because of this my photo-compilation is more a statement about what is going on in Holland ... complete defamiliarisation.
