Since she came to Berlin in 1988, Simone Mangos has endeavoured to systematically reflect upon the history of Germany and to find ways and means to incorporate its unique ordinariness into her artistic work. The very essence of working in Germany as a non-German artist, as well as a growing awareness that neither the German public nor the German artists themselves will ever come to terms with their own past, inspired her to seek her own route into the past.
