»A feeling between shock, grief, and anger; it has to do with my body, with losing control, with memory, the present, with time, powerlessness and outside control,« says photographer Tina Bara of the moment she saw a catalogue of Spanish artist Dora Garcia on her colleague’s desk. »I recognised the photograph, I had become a nude cover girl.« »I« in this case meaning a nude young woman with a black bar covering her eyes. For her work »Rooms, Conversations« Garcia had used several photos from the STASI archives, and incidentally a picture of Bara was selected as the cover of her catalogue. What was a random STASI photo of a nude woman with obscured eyes to Garcia, to Bara was her life. With »Covergirl: Wespen-Akte« Tina Bara and Alba d‘Urbano present an artistic reply to Garcia’s catalogue; a reply which reveals the story of the photographs.
