THE HOLOCAUST SERIES
Video: A conversation with artist Geoffrey Laurence
& curator Simon Zalkind
One of the most powerful exhibits at Remember.org are the works of Geoffrey Laurence, which he has generously shared online for many years. If you live in the Denver, Colorado area, you can see his work live. The above video includes a discussion with Geoffrey in Colorado.
“Art can illuminate traumatic experience in ways that are non-narrative and not necessarily bound to historical veracity as well as in ways that are polyvalent, metaphorical, ambiguous and elusive. With regard to the inconceivable enormity of the Holocaust and its effects on the children of survivors – the generation of “post-memory” – what role can art play in both the preservation of memory and the mediation of the trauma which they have inherited?
