Mind Map

In July 2019, Magdalena Heller had the opportunity to work artistically in Timisoara, Romania, thanks to the AIR scholarship from the City of Salzburg. This resulted in the series “Mind Map”. The series documents a journey of discovery into the subconscious.Old, dilapidated houses form the backdrop, while a girl in colourful make-up wanders through the labyrinth of old rooms. In the process, she encounters her mirror image, which does not seem to notice the decay around her.On her journey, she encounters madness and is confronted with a society in which otherness becomes a problem in a way that has not been seen for a long time.
