Event When Art(ist) Speaks


Eleven Emlékmű / Spinoza Ház

Eduard Freudmann: The White Elephant Archive, Setting No.

In his performance Freudmann traces stories from a family archive founded in 1979 by his grandmother. He links contents of the archive with historical events and current political issues by means of documentary and object theatre. Against a background of the increasing absence of contemporary witnesses, Freudmann brings documents and objects as protagonists on the stage in order to consult them about the eternal dilemma of whether to speak or to be silent about the Shoah.
