Finding Motherland

Franzi Kreis is collecting audio-recorded conversations of daughters, telling their mother’s stories. A significant photographic portrait is taken after each interview. The exhibition consists of the photographic daughter-portraits and headphones/MP3-Players containing the mother’s retold biography. The collection has been touring several empty shops in Vienna’s outer districts in 2019. During a two week stay of the artist Franzi Kreis in February 2020 eight women in Moscow have been portrayed and interviewed . The project is now available in Russian, Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian, German and English.
