She is showing and talking about Barbara Philipp’s work.

TATSACHEN Voices against the Crises - 06

13 june 2020

What do the omnipresent media imagesof this crisis call forth? How do they affect our perception and behaviour, now, as well as in the future? How are emotions translated into speech, what are the consequences for private and political action? And what does freedom mean in this context? Barbara Philipp has created a graphic Knock Down diary.

Matryoshka at the Mothernists Conference 1

5/6/7 June 2015, Rotterdam

During the Mothernism conference participants and the public were asked to

go on a travel with the word „mother“ and an ending that they had to choose before.

They literally connected the wordcard mother with an ending, which they like the most. Then they were asked to write down some thoughts, a family story or an experience, which is connected to this word. As a gift from the m/others artists they received a blank matryoshka doll, which they could decorate as they wish.
