The exhibition is the result of a trip by Ricarda Fallenbacher to the Lebanon as part of the Bockmeyer travel grant.

With the travel scholarship, founded by architect Heinz Arnold Bockmeyer, the H.-A.-Bockmeyer-Foundation enables an annual trip for the realization of an artistic project at the HfK Bremen. Students and alumni from the courses of study Free Art, Integrated Design and Digital Media can apply with a concept. The amount of the travel grant is 3,000 euros.

Ricarda Fallenbacher – I care for you

The background of this exhibition is a collaboration between Hiba and Ricarda. For over three years they have developed a close relationship between work and friendship. As a wheelchair user Hiba runs a team of personal assistants to be her arms and legs during her daily life. As part of her social work studies, Hiba spends extended periods of time in Lebanon, her second home country. The last summer the two spent six weeks there together with another assistant. Ricarda additionally took the role of the artist by filming their adventure: The assistant, the friend and the artist.

The project is on hold for now since Ricarda decided to concentrate on being assistant and friend only. Instead of showing the footage she filmed in Lebanon, she decided to offer a space to pause and enjoy Lebanese food. Cooked by the most talented Lebanese chef Bilal, Hiba’s husband and another protagonist in this whole complex story. Please feel warmly invited!
