Never Let It Rest! An Art Project by Hans Molzberger

Mincberg and Central Galleries

"Never Let It Rest!" is a documentary art project by contemporary German artist Hans Molzberger relating to the small town of Salzwedel in the Saxony-Anhalt region of Germany during the time of Nazi control. This exhibition is based on an exhibit that was shown at the Jenny Marx Museum in Salzwedel from 1998 to 2001.

A concentration camp for women was erected in Salzwedel in 1944 as a satellite to Neuengamme. Up to 1,550 women, most of them Jews from Hungary, were imprisoned there.

Included in the exhibit is historical documentation of events of the time and an art installation created to address specific issues of persecution, war propaganda and the concentration camps.

The exhibit also includes oral testimonies from some of the women who were in the camp and now live in the United States and Israel.

Today, Molzberger lives near the town and continues to be fascinated with its history. For more information, call 713-942-8000, ext. 100, or e-mail exhibits@hmh.org.
