A Time for Everything:
Rituals against Forgetting

Exhibition Catalog

All the objects in this catalog are presented in full-page reproductions. The short texts accompanying each image describe the context in which the ceremonial objects were used and explain their historical background. The catalog also shows the photo series by Quintan Ana Wikswo centering around the "special block" in the Dachau concentration camp. In this project, the American artist grapples with memories of the camp brothel and its place in collective remembrance.
