Holocaust Museum Houston opening reception: Birthrights Left Behind
In Birthrights Left Behind, artist Pauline Jakobsberg poses the question: Is it possible to shape the future through memories of the past?
Birthrights is a selection of Jakobsberg's work consisting of more than 20 original hand-pulled prints using various printmaking techniques, ranging from engraving, etching, silkscreen and collagraph. Jakobsberg dedicates the exhibition to her children and her late husband Wolfgang, who fled Nazi Germany at the age of six with his parents to Bolivia in 1939. Inspired by the stories of her husband's family who suffered considerable loss at the hands of the Nazis, Jakobsberg has devoted much of her art to telling their stories. Many of the works address the Holocaust and the loss of birthright that accompanies the loss of one's homeland.
