Exhibition: "Die Jahrestage" (Anniversaries) von Marc Beckmann

Die Jahrestage (Anniversaries), a new exhibition at the Goethe-Institut Washington, features the work of photographer Marc Beckmann. In his work Beckmann explores how history is narrated, staged, and remembered collectively. The liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp, Prague Spring, D-Day in Normandy, and the Srebrenica Massacre are just a few of the historical events whose anniversaries he documents with his photographs. The Pictures offer the occasion for collective remembrance, sometimes admonishing and warning, sometimes patriotic.
The exhibition is the first engagement in an ongoing programming series called Gestaltung der Vergangenheit (Shape of the Past), that explores memory culture and relationships with the past through various forms of artistic expression.
