As part of the project SEEDS FOR FUTURE MEMORIES. Voicing the two ends of migration, a collaboration with the Thread Residency in Sinthian, Senegal, in 2018 thirteen artists will travel back and forth between Senegal and Italy to confront the realities at both ends of migration.
Judith Raum (born in 1977, lives in Berlin) studied at Städelschule Frankfurt as well as at the Cooper Union School of Arts and Parsons School of Design, New York. After this she completed a master's degree in Philosophy, Art History and Psychoanalysis. She dedicates her artistic work to complex narratives (one of her last projects, that lasted several years, dealt with the construction of the Anatolian Railway by a consortium of the German Empire) and their contingencies, e.g. the collision of subjective and objective driving forces. Since 2005 Judith Raum's lecture-performances and installations have been exposed in many international institutions, including Ludlow 38, New York City (2014), Salt, Istanbul (2015), Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin (2015), Careof, Milan (2015) and were part of the German Pavilion at the 15th Architecture Biennale in Venice (2016). Judith Raum has been a Villa Romana Fellow in 2015.
