The artist Liz Rosenfeld deals with queer perspectives on history. As an artist-in-residence at the Goethe-Institut and the LUX archive for moving image newly established Goethe at LUX Residency in London, she is working on a short film. She spoke about her residency and her work in a video interview.

Liz Rosenfeld, the first artist in residence for the newly established Goethe at LUX Residency, is a Berlin based artist utilising disciplines of film, video and live performance to convey a sense of past and future histories.

In her work, Rosenfeld is invested in concepts of how history can be queered and experienced through the moment and the ways in which it is lived and remembered. She explores how we identify ourselves with in/out community and social poly-relationship configurations.

At the moving image agency LUX, she mainly conducted extensive research regarding the changing queer and ecological history of the London park Hampstead Heath for her new short film FUCK TREE. FUCK TREE is a film made as a companion piece to Luther Price's work, SODOM (1989) from the LUX film archive.
