Art opening reception: Fragments: Architecture of the Holocaust, An Artist’s Journey through the Camps

Fragments: Architecture of the Holocaust, An Artist’s Journey through the Camps

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.  

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.
