ONLINE DOSSIER: MARGIT DRESCHER
A few weeks ago, I realized that I coincidentally (?) am now working on a project that is focussing on a theme that is the opposite of a work I did 13 years ago. The topic then was “forgetting”, with all its different layers and meanings. What does forgetting look like? How does it feel and is it good or bad? How can you talk about “forgetting” when actually it can only be described if it is not forgotten?
Even though “memory” is a big topic in my today's project, I am not sure if it is a leading one. In this project I rather observe that there are memories and the nature of them is that they are idealized and prettier than the reality.
