Mit seinen wissenschaftlichen Veranstaltungen versucht das Wiener Wiesenthal Institut für Holocaust-Studien (VWI) die neuesten Ergebnisse im Bereich der Holocaust-, Genozid- und Rassismusforschung einem breiteren ebenso wie einem ausgewiesenen Fachpublikum regelmäßig näher zu bringen. Die unterschiedlichen Formate dieser über einen engen Wissenschaftsbegriff hinausweisenden Veranstaltungen, die von in einem kleinen Rahmen gehaltenen gehaltenen Vorträgen, den Simon Wiesenthal Lectures über für ein Fachpublikum interessante Workshops bis zu großen internationalen Tagungen, den Simon Wiesenthal Conferences reichen, spiegeln das breite Tätigkeitsfeld des Instituts wider.

 

Präsentationen von ausgewählten Neuerscheinungen zu den einschlägigen Themen des Instituts, Interventionen im öffentlichen Raum, die Filmreihe VWI Visuals und die Fachkolloquien der Fellows runden die Palette der Veranstaltungen des Instituts weiter ab.

VWI invites Institute for Contemporary Art at the Technical University Graz   

KateIn recent years, scholars have devoted increasing attention to memory of the Holocaust in the early postwar period before the Eichmann trial. This presentation highlights the cultural production of Jewish refugees during this period – but it focusses on forms of remembrance not primarily concerned with what has come to be known as 'bearing witness'. In contrast to the landmark memoirs of survivors like Primo Levi or Elie Wiesel, who attempted to document for the world the genocide of Europe’s Jews, writers and artists like Avrom Sutzkever and Marc Chagall turned to surreal visual vocabularies both to memorialize destroyed Jewish communities and to make sense of their own indeterminate position in the postwar world. The hybrid figures and liminal space in their work convey both an enduring sense of proximity to the dead and, often, distance from the living. Together, the art and literature featured in this presentation constitute an alternative tradition of Holocaust remembrance.

Commented by Milica Tomić

Kathryn Brackney is a Junior Fellow at the Vienna Wiesenthal Institute for Holocaust Studies and a doctoral candidate in modern European intellectual and cultural history at Yale University. She was previously a fellow at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and the USC Shoah Foundation. Her article Remembering ‘Planet Auschwitz’ during the Cold War was recently featured in UC Berkeley’s journal, Representations.

Milica Tomić is an artist and head of the Institute of Contemporary Art at the Technical University in Graz. Tomić’s collective as well as investigative art projects offer an innovative way to engage with new forms of memorialisation beyond existing commemorative practices. Since 2002, she has been a founding member of the Grupa Spomenik and in 2010 she developed the interdisciplinary project Four Faces of Omarska. Her exhibitions have been exhibited in among other places the Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin, the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Brooklyn Museum in New York, the Kunsthalle and the MUMOK in Vienna, the KIASMA in Helsinki, as well as at the Biennales in Venice, Sydney, and Istanbul.
