Snapshots – that capture the moment
Documents – that retain and create memories
Images – that represent memories and give them significance
The objects of this exhibit are the families of each of the three participating artists. Their families are represenative of countries which are historically intertwined: Germany, Poland, Ukraine, Russia, Israel.
By the examination of memory itself, of family narratives, documents and artefacts of family history, the artists weave a multifaceted net that explores personal recollections in context of factual and public history. The exhibit is composed of documentary work side by side with the artists’ creative interpretations.
