Eduard Freudmann's White Elephant Archive
|When||April 23, 2018 7:30pm - 8:45pm|
|Contact Information||Rockefeller Memorial Chapel|
|Description||The White Elephant Archive, Setting No. 3 explores the legacy of the Holocaust from the perspective of the third generation living in Austria today. In this intensely personal, documentary / object theatre production Eduard Freudmann uses his family’s archive—which includes poems written by his grandfather while imprisoned in concentration camps—to explore his family’s silence about the Holocaust, and his own attempt to understand the burden of this legacy through art. The piece reflects on the politics of Holocaust commemoration in Austria, and larger questions about how to speak of a horror once its witnesses are gone or silent. |
Presented by the University of Chicago Greenberg Center for Jewish Studies, with support from the Future Fund of the Republic of Austria, Federal Chancellery of Austria, and Austrian Cultural Forum New York City.
