In conjunction with the major exhibition at Museum Frieder Burda in Baden-Baden, Salon Berlin presents a thematically focused selection of Katharina Sieverding‘s work in the former Jewish school for girls in Auguststrasse.

On show are large-scale photographic works referring to the darkest chapter in Germany’s history, the National Socialist era. They are based on documents from the concentration camps at Dachau and Sachsenhausen and records held at the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin. With these works, Katharina Sieverding reminds us of experiences of Anti-Semitism and alienation, racism and violence so timeless and patently insuperable that they have the power to shock us again and again.

Salon Berlin is also showing monumental self-portraits from
the late 1960s and the work TESTCUTS, a reflection on Katharina
Sieverding‘s own biography: events in the art world from 1966 to the present are shown together to form a large-scale photo-collage of 20 m.

The exhibition is curated by Udo Kittelmann in cooperation with Katharina Sieverding.
