Gesche Würfel: What Remains of the Day—Memories of WWII

February 24 -

February 27, 2021

Exhibition overview

What Remains of the Day is an exhibition highlighting the work of contemporary artist Gesche Würfel which explores the history and memory of World War II through landscape photography and portraiture. Uniquely, this exhibition features oral histories recorded by the artist of individuals who survived the Holocaust and World War II. According to the artist, “I was born and raised in Germany, so I have a personal relationship to the aftermath of WWII and my family’s involvement in the war. I now live in the U.S., which enables me to view my home country through a diƗerent lens. With this exhibition, I aim to create a bridge between the past and the present. The interplay of words from the survivors coupled with their portraits and images of historical sites are important for my project because it oƗers multiple interwoven perspectives.”
