Breathing the Unpredictable
In her first solo exhibition at the Goethe-Institut in Hong Kong, Carla Chan will show with a selection of only four works of art the diversity of her oeuvre. At a first glance it is a wild and rough landscape that Carla Chan – now based in Berlin – is offering the visitor. A perfect counterbalance to the noisy neighbourhood in Wanchai with its never-ending traffic.

German Film Forum - The Perfect Crime: Labyrinth of Lies
The “economic miracle” is in full swing, things are going well for people and they’d rather forget all about the horrors of the Nazi era. But then the journalist Thomas Gnielka causes a civil commotion. One of his friends has identified a former Auschwitz guard. Now Gnielka wants to take this man to court in Frankfurt. However, his plan is not taken up. Only the young public prosecutor Johann Radmann agrees to take on the case, against his supervisor’s will. He finds himself enclosed in a net of repression, denial and romanticisation.
