Memory | Glass | Work | Transforming
SCHICHTEN (meanings: layers, stack, shift work) is a cooperation between the Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf Museum and SCHOELER.Berlin on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War.
Forced labor was part of everyday life in Berlin during the war. 75 years later few traces remain in the city of this formerly omnipresence. The history of the hamlet of Wilhelmsaue is interwoven with forced labor, and civic initiatives have demanded that it be declared a monument as such.
SCHICHTEN opens at two district cultural institutions as a space for reflection on the relationships between forced labor, art, and memory. The Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf Museum at Villa Oppenheim exhibits photographs by the artist Hadas Tapouchi, that place forced labor in a static setting and make the often fragmented records of the forced labor system more transparent.
Villa Oppenheim Gallery, 13th of June to the 11th of October 2020
In SCHICHTEN the topic and starting off point of the exhibition is the 75th anniversary of the end of WWII and the memory of the labor camp in Wilhelmsaue. A broad entry is created, and content engages at different levels, through the media of photography, glass sculpture, and printmaking. In the exhibition visitors are brought closer to this topic and can deepen their understanding with nuanced exhibition materials.
With artworks by: Stanisław Fijałkowski, Jehoshua Rozenman and Hadas Tapouchi
