Images can store and transport a totality of experiential situations that words hardly approach. That is why they are so well suited as a medium for remembering. As a former part of the situation depicted, photographers are often confronted with their own condition, feelings or thoughts.
I had actually visited the transit camp Marienfelde in southern Berlin in 2015, in order to track the refugee past of my own family and the memories associated with it. Being there, I learned that the facility was once again established as a reception centre in the course of the so-called ‘refugee crisis’. I took the picture from a room in which the original furnishings of a family room were exhibited.
