HALTESCHTELLEN

2003

My point of departure for this project is the memories of children who grew up alongside atrocities but were not themselves either victims or old enough to be agents. This could include German children during the Holocaust, white children in South Africa during apartheid, Jewish children in Israel today, pioneer children in the early history of the United States, etc. What I'm interested in are not blatant recollections of violence but subtle and decidedly childish images. The project consists of seven unique posters placed in bus shelters. Each poster has a short text taken from a novel or memoir and an illustration of a familiar object.
