Flap Text:

Monika Drach’s artistic exploration focuses on cultural identity and its conditioning and transformations. In her projects, the artist invites people to take part in a dialogue. Based on her own family’s history of migration, she is exploring both societal contexts as well as individual migration experiences and identity processes.

More than a hundred participants have contributed texts, images and audio or video recordings (via internet platforms, email or through personal contact) which were incorporated into the artist’s topical room installations. As a curator, she has also invited other performing artists to take part in her exhibitions.


This project is about looking at both oneself and at others. In particular, it is about people meeting and exchanging their perceptions and experiences. Ultimately, development only takes place when we open ourselves up to unfamiliar perspectives.
Monika Drach is an artist and social scientist who has been working on participatory and transnational projects aimed at creating a dialogue between art and social research since 2006. She lives and works in Göppingen and Stuttgart.
