Image Concept

In the work Image Concept one can find a neutral and emotionless description of an image, with information such as the location, the date and time, the weather condition and a little pencil drawing of what the place looked like when I was there.

To actually experience this image one has to follow the information and visit the place.

What I am trying to make clear with this work is that you cannot give an absolute definition of something. The places I visited in making this series do not have any emotional importance for me. Only the stories I’ve been told can give these places a meaning.

In 2008 and 2009 I visited different historic sites of former Nazi Germany. I visited former labor and concentration camps and other places that have been relevant during the dictatorship of Adolf Hitler.
