Alena

from Belarus

I am particularly interested in the topic of WWII because it is something that is related to many European families and my family is not an exception. During the WWII my grandmother was in a forced labor camp. Two years ago I decided that I, as a young artist, want to reflect on the topic of my grandma’s experience and go deeper into this topic. So I went to an artist residence in Berlin. The residence was on the basis of NS Zwangsarbeit Dokumentationszentrum. At the end I made an art project in which I reflected my emotions of visiting these places.
