The exhibition examines the artistic practices of contemporary Polish artists addressing themes of memory and the material traces of the Holocaust. With artworks by Zuzanna Hertzberg, Elżbieta Janicka & Wojciech Wilczyk, Paweł Kowalewski, Agnieszka Mastalerz, Natalia Romik, Wilhelm Sasnal, and Artur Żmijewski & Zofia Waślicka-Żmijewska.
Where did National Socialism and its ideology come from? How did Adolf Hitler come to power and why did democracy fail? What led to racial and social exclusion, war, and mass murder? The exhibition examines the origins and rise of National Socialism in Munich and the city’s special role in the Nazi regime of terror. It also addresses the city’s difficulties in dealing with this history since 1945 and the impact the past still has today.
