Rain on a window pane, a fire truck, a tomcat with innumerable offspring: it is an intentionally unintentional gaze that allows for chance encounters, for stories and memories – leads that Ruth Beckermann follows across Europe and the Mediterranean.

Could be considered as key work in Beckermann's oeuvre. Glimpses into daily life that always show different political, moral, cultural and historic dimensions of human life. The title is present in almost every scene both as metaphor and as visual manifestations and its literal meaning. And a thoughtful, but no nostalgic look back on Beckermann's own past. Beautiful!
