Lynne Marsh - Speaker

What brought me to Berlin was, a year-long residency at Künstlerhaus Bethanien in 2006-2007 and since that time I have been making a body of work that is very much in dialogue or informed by Berlin as a place. Berlin is a city charged, if not burdened with history. It is palpable and part of the atmosphere. It is important for me to state that my take on Berlin is the viewpoint of the tourist and a post-1989 reality. I am observing and responding, in my own way to sites and contexts that interest me. The point of view as the tourist allows me a certain kind of freedom and interpretation of sites and situations informed by their historical past but operating socially and politically in the present tense. I will present and discuss my research and a series of video installation works that are in dialogue with the social, political and historical specificities of particular sites in Berlin.
