'Auschwitz. What am I doing here?' - Mikołaj Grynberg's exhibition in Swedish Riksdag
29 May – 1 June 2012, Stockholm, Sweeden
The exhibition "Auschwitz. What Am I Doing Here" by the Polish photographer Mikołaj Grynberg was shown in the Swedish Parliament, with support from the Network. The exhibition, forming part of a wider educational project, was composed of blurred black and white portraits of visitors to the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum, and sharp colour photographs of the architecture of the former Nazi German concentration camp. It was accompanied by recordings of the artist talking with visitors to the museum.
- I came here to experience this.
- Experience what?
- To confront this.
- Confront what?
- Emotions! Don't you understand?
- I do. I'm doing exactly the same.
- You just have to come here.
