IT WAS ME. DIARY 1900-1999 presents one hundred years of history out of any chronological order presented in the first person. Effectively, Comani has written a diary of the 20th century as though all the events actually happened to her. From one day to the next, from one report to the next, she is a passive witness, then an activist, then victim, then perpetrator. In this way she is seemingly the initiator of these twentieth-century historical events. IT WAS ME. DIARY 1900-1999 exists in three versions: as big digital print on vinyl cloth, as audio-installation and as book
