Review about the DÖW exhibition in Graz

Filed under: 2015/16,Englisch — Schlagwörter: — admin @ 22:26

Last Monday we attended an exhibition in the “Graz Museum“ about art of the Second World War. The exhibition was about drawings by artists that lived in the Second World War, which showed how the everyday life of the prisoners in concentration camps looked like.

Many artists were prisoners or refugees themselves so their art was about how they saw the Nazis and how they dealt with the people in the concentration camps. Mostly, of course, the drawings showed very sad scenarios in which people got hurt or where dead bodies were transported away.

A really nice lady, which leaded us through the exhibition, told us many facts about the artists themselves and especially about the DÖW which is an archive in Vienna where most of these pieces of art about Second World War and especially about the Holocaust are preserved.

As part of the guided tour we had to do a group work in which we had to pick a favourite drawing and tell the others about it, what is shown in it and also a bit about the artist.

All in all, it was a very interesting exhibition, particularly because it focused on the life of the prisoners in concentration camps.
I would totally recommend it to people who are interested in the Second Word War and it is definitely worth a visit.
