Scenes of Exile

€ 29,00


Exiles (2020). With this carefully researched contribution to the historiography of exile, we also seek to strengthen the culture of remembrance; in addition to reconstructing the lives of refugee and emigrant artists, the books' authors offer in-depth discussions of their oeuvres and ideas that, we hope, will help protect them from oblivion.

“Not only do you have to adapt to a new life, you moreover have to try to somehow understand what actually happened and how you deal with it. An entire life goes by and you still don't understand it."(Amos Vogel)
