Stilbeschreibung

- the old cemetery in Prague
- for you Renée, my sister
- do you remember?
- central European culture!
- Mitteleuropa!
- gone and forgotten
are contextual reflections on my part: how impressed and moved I was when I visited the Old Jewish Cemetery in Prag. Confronted with the sight of a vanished cultural world, I gazed at the old tombstones inscribed with Hebrew characters and jutting out at angles, half sunken into the earth. Suddenly my memory produced associated signals with the existence of a past culture: in the topography of the geographical ‘entente’ of the then Hapsburg monarchy with its fertile multiculturalism and many religions this vanished culture centrally anchored a specific “cross-over” character in a bygone Europe. As an heir to this same culture, I wanted to lend it expression. Zitat von Edition hh http://www.editionhh.co.uk/hh86cat.htm Stand Jänner 2007
