Goethe@LUX Residency Artist 2017
The artist Liz Rosenfeld deals with queer perspectives on history. As the London artist-in-residence, she worked on a short film dealing with the changing queer and ecological history of the London park Hampstead Heath.
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. During the residency, a series of events with Liz took place in London and Glasgow. Hear more about her artistic practice, her time in London and how she feels about the German capital in the video interview:
