Ulrike Rosenbach: „My little daughter sits on my lap. Accompanied by the musical sounds of breathing, I tie us together with transparent gauze bandages. We are in any case inseparably joined.“ In this performance Ulrike Rosenbach joins her reflections about her relation to her daughter with her artistic work.
