Lecture Performance “Material für einen Prozess” by Jakub Šimčik
The investigation of his family’s migration history led Jakub Šimčik to research his own biography in the archives of the ‘Staatssicherheit’ (state security service). The result of his research is a collection of propagandist films, documents and photography: pictures of escape attempts, untouched wilderness and an overwhelming threat. Pictures of the German boarder. The Lecture Performance combines the collected material with Jakub Šimčik’s video work.
The publication “Material für einen Prozess” was published 2019 by himself.
