Project:

Books and Libraries
as Witnesses of the Holocaust:
Monuments in Vienna,Berlin and Jerusalem

Books and archives contain knowledge and represent
the human desire to preserve the past for
future generations. My project deals with monuments
that use books and libraries as symbols to
commemorate the Second World War and the
Holocaust. As I am especially interested in the
connections between politics, society and visual
culture these monuments will be examined in the
context of local memory culture and placement,
artistic relations and agency.
