In 2017 Tiphanie Kim Mall began documenting time spent with her family in Basel, Zurich, Normandy and Paris. Echo der Zeit ‘the echo of time’ – the title taken from the name of a Swiss-German radio show that has aired daily since 1945, broadcasting news reports, interviews and political commentary – was filmed by the artist, her partner and other family members. The 40-minute film documents encounters at Mall’s mother’s apartment and workplace and at the houses of her father and grandmother, as well as excursions, meal times and a birthday party.
