“Fragments: Architecture of the Holocaust, An Artist’s Journey through the Camps”
January 31, 2013 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Location Laurie and Milton Boniuk Resource Center and Library
Artist Karl Koenig applied his photographic eye and used the remarkable effects of his gumoil photographic printing techniques to explore the architectural remains of 10 Nazi concentration camps. His style and expressive printmaking method have allowed him to offer a unique interpretation of what these buildings may have been like for concentration camp prisoners. Koenig discovered the polychromatic gumoil method in 1990. The actual photographs were taken over a 10-year period (1994-2004) of 10 different camps. Based on his book of the same title, the exhibition highlights one print from each camp: Mauthausen, Breendonck, Theresienstadt, Buchenwald, Dachau, Sachsenhausen, Vught, Auschwitz, Auschwitz II and Majdanek. Koenig stated, “I aim to lead viewers to look intensely at specific buildings or architectural details, horrible or ordinary as they may be, and find themselves transported inside them…. Once inside, however, the observer is inside the hell of the camps.” Koenig passed away in 2012 of an illness. Library hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The public is invited to a free preview reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 31, 2013. Admission is free, but advance registration is required for this reception.
