Elizabeth Wood: „ A Migrant´s Journey (After Winterreise)“
Bahnsteig U.-Bhf. Cottbusser Platz (U5)
A Migrant’s Journey (After Winterreise) is an adaption of the song cycle written by Wilhelm Müller in 1828. Each line has been selected to follow a narrative and to represent what might today be the experience of a migrant specifically in centres where there has been visible hostility such as the Hellersdorf borough.
The text and background pattern will be installed in the windows of the station staff room on the platform at U-Bhf. Cottbusser Platz. The print is on transparent acrylic film allowing light to pass through from the inside of the staff room similar to light passing through stained glass.
