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 and questions about the political reasons for and the consequences of the expulsion of Jewish Hamburg residents in the past and many more people suffering similar upheavals in other parts of the world, still happening today.

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
