Results of the In Between presented at Stralsund
Works created as a part of the "In Between? – image and memory" project will be shown at St. Jakobi Culture Church in the city of Stralsund, Germany from 1 until 30 August 2020.
In August 2019, young photographers from seven European countries explored the difficult past and the multicultural character of the Kashubia region in Pomerania (Poland), including its most tragic chapter: the mass executions in Piaśnica forests of 1939–1940, in which Nazi Germans murdered around dozen thousands people, inter alia members of Polish intelligentsia from Gdańsk Pomerania as well as Poles, Czechs and Germans who lived within the Third Reich but opposed the Nazi ideology.
"Today, 80 years after the outbreak of the Second World War, the memory of Piaśnica is still alive. While working near Wejherowo with young artists from various parts of Europe, we looked for ways to educate these artists about the events of Piaśnica, whilst utilising photography as a means of conveyance. We searched for narrative and visual language that could show the importance of history for present and future generations."
– Katarzyna Sagatowska, curator of the exhibition and author of photography workshops
