Zeitorte (Temporal Places)
An installation by Georg Soanca-Pollak

November 6 throughout November 13, 2012
Exhibition in the foyer


 


Large-format photo collages combine photographs of the artist's relatives from before World War II with detailed shots that he has taken of the "Memorial to the Murdered Jews in Europe" in Berlin and the former concentration camp in Auschwitz. Through the different layers of pictures, the artist intertwines the present with the past, linking various times and places with one another. They form a kind of bridge bringing the portraits of the deceased and their very personal stories into the present. The artist introduces us to several members of his familiy as representatives of the millions of other victims, giving a face to the individual stories and enabling the viewer to encounter the past on a personal level.
