Assembling Past and Future / Woman to Go

With the video work Assembling Past and Future, Mathilde ter Heijne further develops the project Woman to Go. Historical portrait photographs and video recordings from the present are superimposed. This combination makes it possible to transcend place and time, thus bringing together different personal experiences and stories in the here and now. The narrators are united by the desire and will to transform society through non-violent com­mitment. They are actively involved in processes
of social awareness and change and thus stand up against structural discrimination and categorization within society. The work therefore also sees itself as an artistic search for what, to this day, connects all those who are committed to a peaceful, inclusive society.
