This book of selected works arranges them in a moving sequence. It starts with her face behind maps of Nazi Europe, then shows her in the frame, on a bench reserved for Jews, behind burning Torahs, wearing the yellow star. Moving deeper, she shows her face as the face of victims in actual photographs, and shows herself in Auschwitz, bleeding and bruised. Finally, like so many, her face vanishes--but her eyes remain, bearing witness and reminding us to see clearly what is real and never to forget. A remarkably original, skillful, penetrating series that brings the reader into the frame too.
All the artworks are lucidly and informatively annotated.
This book will be of great value to anyone interested in art and especially its intersection with the Holocaust. A compelling and instructive book.
