ONE THOUSAND AND SEVENTY-EIGHT BLUE SKIES

No disponible

Descripció

Photographer Anston Kusters' project consists of 1078 individual peel-apart polaroid images of blue skies. At every known position of former Nazi concentration camps, over the course of five years, a photograph was taken. Every polaroid image was then permanently tagged with the particular camp's last known GPS coordinates and the-often estimated-number of victims. The photographs are an exploration of an already fading memory, confronting us with the issues of how we see and how we choose to remember. They continue examining the limits of representation of trauma and the Holocaust. The project addresses the ambivalence between the severity of historical incidents and the poetic idea of reflecting on one of the most complex subjects in history. Essays discussing the various forms of meaning inherent in this work accompany the photographs.;Capturing the fading memory of the Holocaust in 1078 polaroid images
