The Strange Room

The Strange Room

Text and Illustration by Anna Gemecke

How would it feel like if your closest relatives seem to be strangers, if your own living space becomes unknown territory? The Strange Room approaches the phenomenon of dementia not through scientific data but via an artistic and poetical perspective. By means of empathy and the use of scripts and sketches created during her grandmother’s illness, the author conveys what might be going on inside a patient’s mind. This book is invaluable for anyone interested in a sensitive discussion of this aging, and the problems family face.
