This expansive installation is the result of an interview project for which the artist set out in search of answers to the question »Where do you come from?«. The more than 160 collected statements are based on, among other sources, research in social networks. With her ongoing project, Maldonado creates a space for exchanging different definitions of origin and belonging, which elude common national attributions.
