Brot und Ro​-​sen

by Anna Schimkat




Anna Schimkat's "Brot und Ro-sen" (Bread and Ro-ses) explores the connection between music, collective memory, and women's struggle for recognition through interviews with women from East and West Germany. The piece includes a score of sound and text fragments based on the interviewees' memories, which was first performed as a sound installation at the ODP Gallery in Leipzig, Germany. It was later performed live by young women at the Gallery for Contemporary Art Leipzig as part of the "Conscious Inability - The Archive Gabriele Stötzer" exhibition. The accompanying booklet includes Marcel Raabe's "Sound Space Body," (“Schall Raum Körper” in German language) and the vinyl's B-side features Schimkat and Raabe's interview collage "Takt halten kann ich nicht" (I can't keep tact).

Edition of 300 copies on black vinyl. Including 12pp booklet with score, photographs and liner notes by Marcel Raabe (in German).
