ICH MUSS MIT IHNEN SPRECHEN
(2015 / 2016)
Installation (Video, Text, 37 Stills on cards), Dur. 1:35 min, HD colour, sound
The miniature Ich muss mit Ihnen sprechen is a continual process of raising the voice and preparing to speak, questioning acts of speech and empowerment.
An examination of the representation of people of colour in mainstream German film and TV arising from research into the politics of film voice dubbing.
The starting point is the “white” German voice artist who dubs Whoopi Goldberg as well as over thirty other African American actors. The accompanying research is made available to the viewer as an archive of record cards and is part of the installation.
Ich muss mit ihnen sprechen (I have to talk to you) is part of Kerstin Honeit’s solo show Talking Business which premiered at the Berlin Art Week 2015, presented by cubus-m, Berlin.
