heimleuchten. 2006

At first glance, luminaries, which are spread across the room, convey a nostalgic feeling of homelike cosiness and comfort. Only at second sight it becomes clear that the light is not 'just' light, it actually consists of letters that make up text passages.

Those are partly bits from autobiographic accounts and partly taken from interviews with children of active national socialists.
They are fragments of the complex processes in between denial, repression and examination.

The work was first presented at the FLAK tower, Vienna, in june 2006.
