Wanted Dana Muckova


In 2009 I travelled to Bratislava in Slovakia to collect materials for my project „Wanted Dana Muckova“.

Dana Muckova was my father ́s first love and I am named after her. The idea for this project emerged after I found a 40-year- old letter Dana Muckova wrote to my father which had her address on the envelope.

I printed an old image of her and my father together on a flyer and started my voyage to Bratislava in search of her.

The aim of this journey was to document my travels to an unknown country and to form some kind of relationship to someone who at the time was unknown to me.

I documented my research using photography, drawing and video in a fragmental way so that I could leave the work open to interpretation.
