CHRISTIAN BOLTANSKI, 1989, mixed media
The French artist with Jewish roots was born during the war. His art is concerned with sociological themes. He aims to dig up the individual from the recorded historical archives. His “Spurensicherer” reconstructs the past from photographs, videos and mended toys. Le Reliquaire refers to the trauma of the Holocaust. The artist presents an encyclopaedic rationality, a monument of death, as it were.
