How history remix came about

In the summer of 2007, Munich’s Department of Arts and Culture asked me to be a guest artist in the international artists’ residency Villa Waldberta. During my work on an EU project titled ‘open here: consTRUCKtions conNEXTion’ I happened upon a photograph depicting young immigrant laborers celebrating at Munich Central Station. The picture started a chain reaction and in the following years History Remix was developed. Although being academic and documental in approach, History Remix is, in essence, a story. Any resemblance the characters may have to real persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental.
