Title: Rockefeller New Media Foundation --Supplementary Material
Other Titles: THIS MEANS YOU- Nazism, the Holocaust, and the Resistance
Authors: Hackenberg, Sigrid
Issue Date: 23-Feb-2007
Abstract: As we enter the 21st century, and history recedes into itself, at the lightning speed that information travels, I have encountered a fascination with extending the moment of history. My installations speak to dramatic events and turning points in history and challenge the viewer to engage in the work as active and thinking participants. Cinematic in scale and epic in character, the recent installations allude to Richard Wagner's concept of the "Gesamtkunstwerk (Total Work Of Art)" and Walter Benjamin's notion of the "Trauerarbeit (Work of Mourning)."
