Marc Beckmann: Anniversaries (Die Jahrestage)
A new exhibition at the Goethe-Institut Washington, Anniversaries is an exploration of 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 German artist Marc Beckmann documents with his photographs. They offer the occasion for collective remembrance, sometimes admonishing and warning, sometimes patriotic. Opening evening with reception and artist talk on Wednesday, March 20, 6:00 pm.
