Miriam Visaczki´s and Claire Waffel's work deals with memory on a personal as well as historical level. Their recent collaboration "Dancing with tears in my eyes" concerns family history and its narration. What may be described as the place of origin of a family and does this place continue to bear relevance after several generations? The artists researched the German and Jewish history of the Czech town Pobezovice, which is situated close to the German border. They selected 8 places that form part of their own family histories in the Czech Republic, Germany, England and the Ukraine and documented these towns. In cooperation with different family members they have started to develop a narration that links Pobezovice with these places. The project which is still ongoing will be presented for the first time in Germany.
