Iris Buchholz Chocolate from Luanda/Angola examines concepts of perception and memory with her installations and performances on the basis of collective memories. Her work often arises through collaboration with others in participatory processes. For the exhibition in Schwerin, she developed an existing sound installation. In “Memórias de um país antigo“ (“The Masks of Memory“), Buchholz interviewed seven academics who completed, inter alia, an economic or German studies programme in the former GDR. These personal stories are important as they represent both an exterior and interior perspective. All seven interviews can be listened to during a boat trip with the Petermännchen over the Pfaffenteich (until early October), as well as in the medieval passage at the town hall. You will find more information about the speakers at these locations.
