Text Installation

created from interviews with the staff and patients at Building No. 19, Karl Gustav Carus University Hospital Clinic, Dresden, 2012


Judith Siegmund has made a text installation from fragments of interviews for the six-story stairwell in Building No. 19. She conducted interviews with future users of the building from all spheres of activities, and also with patients about their dealings in the hospital, their situations and experiences. Judith Siegmund filtered striking ideas from these numerous interviews, which, now taken out of context, provide hospital visitors and the staff with room for new associations. The concepts were painted red on the main stairwell, applied to the wall surfaces with stencils.
