"Undine Groeger présente son exposition photo itinérante: Au-delà de mes murs-Within My Walls and Beyond, conçue en 2014. Undine est d’origine berlinoise, «j’avais 10 ans quand le mur est tombé, depuis, il ne me quitte plus». Au travers d’une vingtaine des photos imprimées au recto de bâches suspendues au plafond du vaste patio du Centre des arts, l’objectif de l’artiste est la «réconciliation du passé dans le présent à travers l’image», ou la déclaration de mission de son projet photo global." ...

and a broadcasted guided tour through the travelling photo exhibition at Impact Hub Geneva in French on May 26, 2016 during la fête aux Grottes.
Wahre Geschichten Zürich invited me to share my story on the theme of Awakening on April 17, 2016.
I chose to write and perform a spoken word on my Awakening on November 10th, 1989 in then East Berlin, and 18 years later in Transnistria. It is about how I became a stranger after the fall of the Berlin Wall, and my journey of reconciliation with the past and back to my identity.
"What does it mean to discover a wall after it fell? Where or what is Transnistria? Where is home? Interested in hearing my story?" Listen to the Podcast here.
