Memory Cleansing

2014 Denazification German National Library

A third part of the work investigates historical events of the immediate post-war era. I have drawn and photographed a selection of documents which are being projected from a slide sculpture very which looks similar to a catalog cabinet.

The documents document the denazification of the Leipzig library between 1945 and 1947. While the statute stipulates an unconditional neutrality of the collection.
