You have five more days to see  the first Munich Artists Summer Window Installation at Odeonsplatz.  The installation vacates the window on Sunday/Monday for the next Munich Artists Window Installation called Absolute Truth by Michaela Wuehr and Emmy Horstkamp.

The current installation was created by me, Emmy Hostkamp,  and is based on a story called “On Death” by Diana Radovan.

I created the installation and then experienced a near death situation with my mother which made writing about planning for your death and not being a burden a little too much like realty.   Neither one of my parents were planners and to create the artwork, I dug into my relationship with my own father and then, after it was installed, experienced my mother’s unexpected health crisis.

I’m feeling a little bit like I’m in some kind of twilight zone where the expectations of a Colombian/German child to take care of her parent are in conflict with her personal feelings.  I’ve followed my social/cultural obligation just like the daughter in the story and now, this piece resonates even stronger with me than it did before I created it.

The installation has two video components which have not been shared on the website but you can see them in this photo.
