Anja Bohnhof/ Karen Weinert

"notice of absence"


Albert Einstein´s workroom, summer house Caputh, Einstein Forum, Potsdam & workroom Annette von Droste-Hülshoff, House Rüschhaus, The City Museum of Münster; the photographies show museums and momorials of historically important figures that were cleared by the two photographers. By the view of the empty rooms the work poses the question "What remains when nothing remains?" Referring to a socio-culturally formulated position, the question remains for the observer to answer.
