Charlotte Salomon: A Life Before Auschwitz Lecture
1 June 5:00 pm
On Wednesday 1 June at 5pm UK time, Monica Bohm-Duchen, founding director of Insiders/Outsiders, is giving a talk for the US-based Fritz Ascher Society about the remarkable Berlin-born Jewish artist Charlotte Salomon, creator of Life? or Theatre?, an ambitious fictive autobiography which deploys both images and text, and a wide range of musical, literary and cinematic references. Salomon found illusory refuge in the South of France but perished in Auschwitz in 1943.
