I once entered a garden

09.02 – 17.02.2019

This interactive installation, somewhere between documentary and fiction, takes as its starting point intimate tales of first sexual experiences in times of war and peace in the Middle East. The work is based on testimonies from several generations of citizens from Palestine, Iraq, Lebanon and Syria, adults’ memories of their teenage years.
