A dialogue between non-Western and Western cultures on anthropological, sociopolitical, and environmental as well as economics-related and day-to-day questions


Alice Musiol

When Tears Don´t Cry
“Art has always been part of my life, a reaction to both internal and external circumstances. It is therefore life itself which provides me with my working concept, as it were,” says Alice Musiol. She was just ten years old when her family moved to Germany from Poland. Not surprisingly, therefore, her works are frequently about home and about leaving home and the experience of foreignness. There is an overriding concept, too. The works themselves must not be burdensome, but on the contrary must be easily transportable, which is why they are either small or can be taken apart, folded up or reproduced. Musiol builds her delicate and fragile creations out of everyday materials and in doing so succeeds in transforming the mundane into works that are disturbing and affecting.
