Description: 

In line with (art)n's preceding Holocaust focused work, including 1995's Interior of a Barracks: Auschwitz-Birkenau, created with the Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation, a sixteen works commission for the Museum of Jewish Heritage in 1997, and 2012's Deconstructing the Barracks: Auschwitz-Birkenau, Ellen Sandor and her collaborative decided to take the historically important landmark and deconstruct it. While shedding light on the horrible conditions of the segregated sector, the work also begins to tear down the dividing wall in response to the inevitable change only time would bring. The final scene rests as a dark reminder of Europe's tragedy while also offering remembrance to those affected by such affliction.
