This Residency Program Exhibition introduces the results of two recent artist residencies. On display are works by USA-based Bradley McCallum & Jacqueline Tarry, who have been producing artworks collaboratively as a team since 1998, as well as Yishay Garbasz, an artist of British and Israeli nationality based in Germany.
The two artists/groups we introduce this time have been creating works of art based on such questions of individual and collective memory.

Bradley McCallum & Jacqueline Tarry, as participants in TWS's experimental long-term residency program, visited Japan once for preparatory research in the summer of 2008, and then again for the actual creation and presentation of their work in the spring of 2009. They are keenly pursuing in their works issues of racism, and other problems arising between the individual and society.

Yishay Garbasz was selected by the recommendation of Dietmar Elger (Director, Gerhard Richter Archiv) to take part in the International Nomination Program for creators recommended by internationally operating artists and curators. Based on her mother's reminiscence of the Holocaust as one of the few survivors of this unprecedented tragedy in the history of mankind, she followed her mother's footprints through the Holocaust to various locations in the Netherlands, Germany and Poland, where she took photographs for her In My Mother's Footsteps series.
