Hannah Arendt

Hannah Arendt Wins the Youth Fencing Title—in the Pomeranian Regionals.

Mediums: Drawing, Printmaking, Animation

I have been working on a project that I call “Putative Lives of Great European Thinkers,” which presents possible biographies of Hannah Arendt, Walter Benjamin and Mikhail Bahktin. Unencumbered by facts yet quite believable, the drawings and texts coax viewers into rethinking their knowledge of these respected figures as well as their own ideas about a seminal period in history. The unreality of the putative lives contains another message: individual lives, even the best-researched ones, remain elusive and to some degree the object of imagination.
