In 1999 internationally renowned German multimedia artist Rebecca Horn created a large-scale work in Weimar/Germany, commemorating the horrors of genocide and emigration. Weimar was not only the residence of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, it was also the site of the concentration camp Buchenwald, one of the most horrifying chapters in German History. Horn’s darkly intense two-part installation evokes both the shoah and the mass murders in former Yugoslavia. The first part of Concert for Buchenwald is an installation in an abandoned depot. Its walls are lined with glass panes behind whose shiny surfaces you can make out layer upon layer of ashes. The second part of Concert for Buchenwald is installed on Schloss Ettersburg, an 18th century palatial residence. The essays in this book explore various aspects and interpretations of Horn’s installation that is as politically incisive as it is poetically concise. Rebecca Horn’s notes trace the genesis of the installation’s metaphors.
