In the initial months after my return from Lesbos, I did some experimenting using the sewing machine. I wasn’t particularly pleased with the results. With the support of costume designer Gesine Habermann from Frankfurt, I created my own piece for the exhibit, under the title “Long Time no See.” The clothing artwork itself, a set of photographs and a documentary film to accompany it were already available for viewing in Freiburg at the Karl Rahner Haus (Link to “Long Time No See”). It will also initially be available for visitors to try on in “Textile Touches of Escape and Migration.”
