Home – Layers of Truth (view from the back)

Home is….

…so many different things. It is memories, connections, responsibilities and emotions. From my new homebase in Germany, I explore the personal, political and social links I have to Namibia and the land (farm) which I call home. Current affairs and the colonial history play a role, as do personal memories of growing up on a farm and daily farmlife as expreienced during my visits to my family.

Three pieces of video art were presented. You can watch one of them – (The Impossibility of) Cleansing Healing Watering – here:
