         Charomushki Odyssey 1930-2022

Belarus, near the border with Poland: I found a box full of photographic glass plates in an abandoned house in the forest. In the 1930s and 1950s, the local village photographer recorded important events, created portraits of the residents and thus captured the sometimes dramatic times of upheaval - testimonies of an Eastern Europe of diversely mixed cultures. Since these historical recordings, the area has experienced collectivization, the Second World War, the Soviet Union and now, for more than 25 years, the authoritarian regime of Lukashenko.

The aim of the work is artistic research that uses visual, historical and ethnological approaches in a transdisciplinary manner. The background motif preserved in said house and used for many portraits will serve contemporary photographs of today's residents. In the synopsis with the historical, there is the opportunity for comparative research of the earlier families and their stories. Literally a journey through time: man as a reflection of events. The aim of the work project is thus the construction of a visual history of our time
