Art or Document?
The tour provides insights into the phenomenon of artistic creation at the Theresienstadt ghetto and into the art of Bedřich Fritta.
Fritta headed the drawing studio where imprisoned artists had to work on behalf of the SS. They used this official task as a cover for their "illegal" work. Based on selected examples, the artistic and aesthetic strategies used to represent everyday ghetto life in Fritta's unofficial drawings will be discussed.
