Jozef Szajna, Our Curricula Vitae, 1944, ink and pencil on paper Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum in Oswiecim
THE LAST EXPRESSION: ART AND AUSCHWITZ

Friday, March 7, 2003 - Sunday, June 15, 2003

Brooklyn Museum of Art
200 Eastern Parkway, New York, NY Tel: 718.638.5000

Carefully researched over a period of five years by David Mickenberg, while director of the Mary & Leigh Block Museum of Art at Northwestern University in Chicago, and by Corinne Granof, Assistant Curator at the Block Museum, this is the largest exhibition of art from the concentration camps, ghettos, and hiding places of Nazi-occupied Europe ever assembled, with over 200 works, the majority on loan from museums and private collections in Poland and Israel. Some works are by amateurs, some by accomplished artists as Jozef Szajna. Some were done on assignment by SS authorities as a means of survival, others done secretly to preserve or smuggle out evidence of the horrors, or to salvage at least a portrait from the genocide.
