Lieux de Mémoire  and Desire

05.09.2015 – 13.09.2015

Lieux de Mémoire and Desire presents five cinematic works of Maya Schweizer and examines how the artist approaches the relation of montage editing techniques with the concept of film and memorial and film as memorial — a relation which traces back to the very beginnings of montage as it does to research findings by French historian Pierre Nora. Recurring moments in Schweizer’s multiform art practice revolve around the examination of subtly treated processes of memory regarding historic-political events in public space. In the places, structures and situations she investigates, historical threads intersect.
