Eine Schwalbe macht noch keinen Sommer (an excerpt)

This participatory video was made in 2006 as part of a six-month artist residency at Künstlerdorf Schöppingen, Germany. Each person in this video explained to me his or her favorite German proverb. All participants suffer from dementia. Since proverbs are stored in the long-term memory, they are one of the last memories to fade. In total I collected 53 German proverbs.

This video was made in 2011 as part of an art fellowship at Städtischen Behindertenzentrums Dr. Dormagen-Guffanti in Cologne, Germany.
