About the Workshop

History leaves traces behind. Some history has no memorials and leaves no visible traces. It exists in the gaps of the archives and people’s minds. It exists in the stories of those who lived through it and shaped it. It is they who leave traces. 

zurückERZÄHLT makes their stories audible and brings them back to the place where it all happened. Our work takes inspiration from the exhibition »zurückGESCHAUT«, continuing the research on the biographies that is collected in the archive there. We ask the question »What if…?« If the stories of the children, women and men from that summer weren’t a gap in the collective memory. They’re reflected in the ripples of the water, they whisper in the leaves of the trees. Listen and look around.
