Place of Residency
Frauke Berg lives in Düsseldorf and is a visual artist and experimental musician (electro/acoustic). Numerous drawings, radio works, digital animations, installations and performances have been created in various collaborations and contexts. Her main interests are in-situ work and communication. Drawings are used as well as animations, noises, sounds and installations. As initiator of the "Hallraum Projekt", which was part of the art project "Gasthof Worringer Platz" founded by Andrea Knobloch and Oliver Gather, she invited positions between sound and visual art into public space. Here, questions about "togetherness" in space were repeatedly negotiated and made visible.
The extensive archive from the years 2013-2020 can be explored here.
Project during Borderland Residence
visual art and sound art
Although living and working only 30 kilometres away from the open pit mining area, Frauke had never visited the Garzweiler Tagebau before her residency at Hausmuseum. During her residency, she plans to research the landscape of the open pit mining as well as the relocation of local families and the activist camp in Lützerath. She works closely with loacal artist and founder of the Hausmuseum Inge Broska. Frauke means to collect sounds, photographs and video material from around the whole area that eventually will be integrated into a film project.
