Beatrice Schuett Moumdjian »Forensic Excavations Inventory or The Total Deconstruction of an Armenian Family«

Beatrice Schuett Moumdjian‘s collage-type poster series deals with the role of German arms manufacturers in the context of her family‘s history and the Armenian genocide during the First World War. The artist uses the archaeological method of ›Forensic Excavations Inventory‹ to research her family biography. In doing so, she positions herself against a historicisation of the genocide and instead contextualises it in present day urban Berlin. The artwork points to the repercussions of war, to the legacy of death, flight and migration still felt several generations later.
