In autumn 2018, we are launching a series of presentations under the heading “Mal gut, mehr schlecht” [Some good, more bad]. The photographer Nora Klein and one of the project’s participants, Sabine Fröhlich, will use these visual and oral presentations to give an insight into the topic of depression. The presentations are an open invitation to everyone to engage with the subject.

Nora Klein has long been in contact with people who have experienced depression. The resulting photographs and personal stories have been brought together in her carefully curated book “Mal gut, mehr schlecht”. Sabine Fröhlich is one of the people who participated in the project that led to the creation of this book. Now, both women want to share their experience with a wider audience. Often, friends and family of those affected do not understand what their loved ones are going through. So, it is often difficult for them to show the understanding and support they need. This series of presentations is meant to offer a glimpse into the unknown world of depression and to help those affected as well as their friends and family to find a common understanding. Likewise, people affected by depression often feel left alone with their troubles. Listening to the stories of others, who have lived through similar experiences, helps them to know that they are not alone but part of a wider community; an experience that gives them hope and the strength to carry on.
During the 2-hour presentation, Nora Klein will show photographs based on her book “Mal gut, mehr schlecht”. These will be complemented by Sabine Fröhlich telling her personal story. Her experience of depression as well as her path towards healing will be the focus of the presentation. We want to showcase this project as a positive example of personal development. After the presentation, listeners will have the opportunity to ask questions and talk about their own experience with depression. Talking about sensitive and touchy subjects, such as suicide, helps to break the silence surrounding these issues and creates a platform for an open and honest conversation. Common experiences like these help people who have experienced depression to feel heard and understood in their struggle. They open up possibilities to talk further about the issues and to take steps that help them find a way out of it.
