EXILES

This work has expanded on my studies of Altonaer Straße, 2, and uses archival architectural plans of Berlin buildings owned and occupied by Jews and other persecuted artists and intellectuals of the 1930s. I use old, found and sometimes damaged paper, to echo the pages of the archival files and bound books that provide me with my source material. I continue to develop this project and have included the former homes of: Kurt Weill; Lucian Freud; Lion and Marta Feuchtwanger; Otto Dix; Walter Benjamin; and Ruth Vollmer. Through architecture, the work is concerned with identity, place - and a culture's loss both of individual citizens and of a creative tradition.
