FASIA, audio installation Hammerschmidt + Gladigau, Erfurt 2023


The work FASIA is dedicated to the singer-songwriter Fasia Jansen (1929-1997). The audio work uncovers traces of the forgotten history of Black Germans and multidirectionally recalls past and present anti-racist struggles. FASIA is Part I of the work BLACK LIVES AUDIO TRIPTYCH.

Ina Wudtke wrote the text for Fasia’s fictional audio self-portrait based on her posthumously published autobiographical notes (Marina Achenbach, Fasia, geliebte Rebellin, published by the Fasia Jansen Stiftung, Oberhausen, ASSO Verlag, 2004).

The narrator who brings Fasia to life in the work is Jasmin Eding, who belongs to a group of Black queer women who advocate for the rights and visibility of Black people in Germany. She founded ADEFRA (Black Women in Germany) with others in the 1980s.
