“Witnessing the writing of history”

Installation on wall: A side story about Brecht’s exile in Stockholm, which appears in the 2nd book. The work moves around the meaning of the essay “The essay Betrachtung der Kunst und Kunst der Betrachtung” and Ninnan Santesson’s work, represented by a sculpture. It is also a commentary on female support structures: Ninnan, a politically engaged artist,  taking part in the Norweigan resistant movement, rented out her house to exiles, including Brecht. As well as it brings forth Brecht’s wife and communist, Helene Weigel, who played in the iconic Mother Courage, a play which were written during their exile in Stockholm 1939.
