Lieux de Mémoire and Desire

Lieux de Mémoire and Desire Maya Schweizer - Lieux de Mémoire and Desire
Five cinematic works examining how the artist approaches the relation of montage editing techniques with the concept of film and memorial and film as memorial.
The relation between film and memorial traces back to both the very beginnings of montage and incorporates the research of French historian Pierre Nora. Recurring moments in Schweizer's multiform art practice revolve around the examination of subtly treated processes of memory regarding historic-political events in public space. In the places, structures and situations she investigates, historical threads intersect.
