In UNFORGETTABLE, the dancer and choreographer Fernanda Ortiz interweaves political and socio-historical memories – from Argentina, Germany and worldwide – with her own (dance) biography. A scenic collage of re-enactments, stories, photographs, video sequences, original artifacts and graphic images is created in the gallery space.
In interaction with the musician Gregory Büttner, the video artist Friederike Höppner, the photographer Chris Kremberg and the graphic artist Erik Tuckow, the native Argentine merges her personal dance archive with a kaleidoscope of historical and cultural memories.

The dancer’s body is at the center as an individual actor and at the same time as a mirror of time and space: the military dictatorship in Argentina,German traces in Argentine history and political decisions of the global north that determine the global south. What traces do they leave behind in the body? Which images are engraved in it? what is unforgettable? For each and every one of us and for all of us together?
Memories are brought into the present image by image from the past and, at the moment of the performance, are transformed into a documentary-scenic archive of memories.


“UNFORGETTABLE blurs the boundaries of time.”
