about

Filmpassenger is the homepage of film maker and media artist Kathrin Lemcke.

In her works Lemcke deals with traces of historical and political situations in places and landscapes. She’s interested in the interrelation between the individual and the collective history or present. Her current works try to approach relationships of gender and economy.

In 2014 she realized the documentary You know just how it was in Rostock together with Miteinander e.V. and Sound-designer and artist Claus Störmer of YHT. The same year she co-organized the Workshop Wütende Frauen together with Berlin based artist Markues as part of the group project Q.[art] at Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design and showed parts of her educational work in the temporary art space poly.mär. 2013 she co-curated the group show Q.[art] – what the ar_t?! together with the sculptors Daniela Schönemann and Lukas Wronski and finished her biographical documentary fourth generation singular perfect.

Currently she’s been working on a complex of works which she reassembles under the title Return of the Housewives. The works deal with issues of feminization of work, self-employed precarious working conditions and the figure of the housewife. One of the first parts is called Tracing housewives and was exhibited in the Frauenkulturtage in Halle in autumn 2014.

Kathrin Lemcke also works as an editor.

She lives in Halle (Saale) – within close distance to Leipzig and Berlin and not far from the airport.
