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.

Liz Rosenfeld was the first artist in residence for the 2017 established Goethe at LUX Residency, which is organised in collaboration between the Goethe-Institut and LUX, the archive for moving image in London. Liz Rosenfeld 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. 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:
