Within the exhibition Home-Street-Home Deborah Uhde offers insight into her film with a video-installation in which she shows a sequence of her current documentary project. Since her summer residency of 2014 in the artist village of Kalbe she has been working on this particular documentary series. On the basis of an interview with a contemporary witness on escaping Germans from the former Eastern Prussia at the end of World-War II, Deborah Uhde is reflecting on the practice of memory. The interviewed woman experienced the political turns of the war as a child. Uhde entangles the biographical story perceived as a voice-over with current static recordings of the woman‘s various life stages in the town of Kalbe. In this way, the viewer is vividly caught up by the past.
History and current events overlay and complement one another. […]

Cockpit is a control psychosis on 6 monitors. The journey leads from the interior of the earth into cosmic orbit. Starting point is the nuclear waste storage Asse, a former salt mine. The documentary recordings of places and events (of storage, public mediation and protest) are interwoven with an auditory network of Sci-Fi material from the age of nuclear euphoria.

Deborah Uhde not only talks about her father’s illness and the difficulties she had as a child and adult in dealing with it and somehow in maintaining the relationship, but also reflects on the mode of memory and narrative. About the sense and nonsense of the search for meaning in pictures. About the helplessness with which one uses such auxiliary constructs to make something incomprehensible tangible.
