Who is Afraid of Hannah Wolf (2023), two interactive wall mounted puzzles, 600mmx 800mm each
In this work, two puzzles face each other. One shows Hanna Wolff as a young woman around 1920, the other the former location of her birthplace, Beim Strohhause, in 2020. Viewers can now construct their own picture of her history by actively putting together the puzzle. Past and present intertwine in the process of putting the individual pieces together proposing an individual space of thought that raises questions about the political reasons for and the consequences of the expulsion of Jewish Hamburg residents in the past, today's Jewish life in Hamburg, or the development and conversion of urban and residential space in the past 100 years.
Who is Afraid of Hannah Wolf was first exhibited at Speaking in Someone Else's Language at MOM art Space, Hamburg. For more about the exhibition go here.
