16. (digital) German Talk – Veronica Calarco’s PhD Exhibition ‘This is a Language Warning!’

Dear German Talkers,

I hope you are all doing well during these unfortunately still very unsettling times.

Because we are currently still unable to open our School of Art Galleries to the public, I decided to put together another ‘digital’ German Talk to give you a chance to see some of Veronica Calarco’s great works, which comprise part of her PhD in Fine Art, and to maybe expand your German vocabulary a bit more at the same time. The below presentation will only show part of her work, but you will find a link to her online exhibition in this text and in the presentation, if you would like to see all her images.

I would like to mention here that there are Kurnai and Welsh names of places, persons and images included in this talk. I speak neither language and would like to apologise in advance for my terrible pronunciation of them. This is rather due to lack of skill than disrespect to either language or the people who speak them.

After uploading the presentation, I also realised that the quality is not ideal and that the images tend to be quite pixelated, particularly in full screen mode. Unfortunately, I could find no solution for this. The online exhibition, which you can access via www.aberunidegreeshow.com/veronica-calarco-phd  includes images of much better quality, so I recommend to visit it afterwards.

To watch the presentation, all you have to do is click the ‘play’-button. You find the ‘expand’ symbol in the lower right corner. To leave full screen, simply press ‘escape’.

The PDF is a transcript of the presentation. You might want to download and print it as it also includes some vocabulary and exercises.

I hope you will enjoy the talk and Veronica’s fantastic images.

As usual, I welcome feedback – be it positive or negative. You can either use the comment box below or email me: kaw25@aber. ac.uk

All the best wishes, and stay safe,


(Curatorial & Technical Assistant)

    Danke Karen! Nur jetzt habe ich die Arbeit von Veronica Calarco angekuckt und dein Deutsches Gespräch zugehört. Das war so interessant und die Bilder wirklich fantastisch! Die Fische waren superschön und die Spinne würde ich gern an meinem Wand haben- sogar wenn ich Spinnen night gern habe! Danke für alle deine harte Arbeit. Schade daß wir die Ausstellung nicht besuchen konnten.

    Mit bestem Gruß, Pat Aitchison

      Hallo Pat,

      vielen Dank für dein nettes Feedback. Ich freue mich, dass dir der Talk und Veronicas Arbeiten gefallen haben. Wenn du möchtest, kontaktiere ich Veronica gerne und frage, ob sie die Spinne verkaufen würde und wie viel sie kosten würde. Bitte maile mir dafür direkt: kaw25@aber.ac.uk

      Herzliche Grüsse aus Aber, und frohe Ostern,
