Looking for Zora

Family history research and visualisation, 2009, Zagreb, photos and video installation.
As a CEEPUS guest student in Zagreb, I travelled to Osijek to investigate two postcards that I inherited from my grandfather’s grandmother. They are signed as from Zora, her cousine, with whom all contact was lost. I tried to recover her story, with some, but not full success. The frustrations and difficulties of this work inspired the projection-performance video, where I recite her possible life stories with her face projected on mine, in her native language, German, which I did not at all master at the time. The video was recorded and vocal training was provided by Karolina Kubik.
