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. […]
