My childhood katekismus.

“My childhood katekismus” investigates the path of memory and the inheritance of culture through childhood memories.
Memories are seldom an accurate account, but merely serve as an echo of the past.

As a young women I gazed through a black net to catch a glimpse of a voice trying to recite the first verse of the Koran, a soothing comforting voice memorises, forgets a word, pauses, memorises, starts again and tries to complete the first verse.

Just like an echo bits and pieces of words emerge to the surface of time displaying fragments of cultural luggage.
