Video, Mixed-Media-Installation, Performance
Çiğdem Üçüncü and Steffi Weismann entered into a dialogue and developed a collective audiovisual work in reaction to the 19th February racist terrorist attack in Hanau. The materiality of broken glass and the sounds developed from it form the basis with which actions and memories are interwoven:
Six months after the 19th February terrorist attack, Çiğdem Üçüncü and Steffi Weismann continued their collaboration and talked to activists, survivors and relatives of the victims in Hanau. With the material they’ve gathered on site, they developed a performance for the Galerie Nord in Berlin-Moabit. This mixed media performance carries the voices of the victim’s relatives into public space and enables the audience to confront with the topic on a personal level. The performance was followed by an artists’ talk with members of AARC about the combination of art with politics, its importance and boundaries.
