Memory Cultures

On behalf of the Robert Bosch Stiftung, eight creative professionals from China, Germany, Israel, and other nations designed individual and co-created joint themes for a memory game, addressing various forms of memory cultures – socially approved or acquired manners of a society or a group used to keep parts of the past in their consciousness. As the artists in this game shared their experiences and ideas about cultural affiliation and remembrance in a collaborative process with the other artists, the creation process of this game itself became a contribution to international understanding.

On the other side of Kottbusser Tor, Berlin – I want to show the coexistence of two places I call home, in an inner and outer reality. It is a way of balancing, to treasure home B in your mind while being at home A.
