„Caro Jost is a tracker and a tracer. Her working method is investigative: inquiring and revealing, but not in a voyeuristic manner. With sensitivity, she links historical and very personal aspects together. By carefully interweaving the threads of her own story and her own perspective with elements of the bygone past, she creates a level of self-reflection, in which she not only finds herself, but also allows the observer to do the same. Streetprints are the basic for all her works. Installations and projects are based upon this concept as well.”
