“Reading” a landscape, according to Roland Barthes, means first of all perceiving it with the body and the memory – with the memory of the body . . . so childhood is the best way to get to know a country. In the end there is really only one country: the country
of childhood.

In 1945 Rosemarie Zens’s mother escaped from Pomerania with her infant daughter, on a trek with countless other refugees. Today, Zens retraces this journey, searching for first and formative memories. Dream-like color landscapes are juxtaposed with fragments of family photos.
