A Moment in a Glance 1917-2017
Portrait of Hermann
What do we see? A young man without hair holds a skull in his hands. We don´t know what he thinks, what he feels, or who he is. His eyes are closed and he seems lost in concentration, his fingers rest firmly on the skull of another – presumably – young man, who might have died a century ago. In France, maybe? What are the possibilities of getting in touch with history, with the beings who experienced what happened? Then? There? How do these relics affect us and how do we interact with them? One stares out at us, the other one looks inside himself.
One stares, the other looks inside.
