Dirck Möllmann & Elisabeth Fiedler (Eds.)
Timed to coincide with the 70th anniversary of Europe’s liberation from Nazi totali- tarianism, the six contemporary projects featured in Political Landscape focus on the geography, sociology and history of the Ausseerland region and the western Totes Gebirge, areas active in both supporting and opposing Hitler’s fascism during the mid-1940s. Few witnesses of these past events are still alive and many interpretations are contested. Aiming to awaken collective and individual memory, an international group of artists—Clegg & Guttmann, Eva Grubinger, Florian Hüttner, Angelika Loderer, Susan Philipsz and Bojan Šarcevic—present varying interpretations of the historic landscape. This handsome book with rounded corners and an embossed cover was published on the occasion of the eponymous exhibition and functions as a walking project and history guide. Text and images of each project, the artists and sites are included along with details and local anecdotes.
