Visual artist Aimee Zito Lema (1982, NL/Arg) presents a dialoque with two generations within her own family; her grandmother Fien Bergmeijer - Sanders (NL, 1921) and her cousin Alessia Bergmeijer (IT/NL, 1994). Zito Lema undertakes a conversation with both of them about learning processes, art and life.

The exhibition is the result of the artist's research in which she elaborated her own work, including interviews, photographs and video, as well as the works of her grandmother and cousin (paintings, drawings and collages).
