'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.
