Non‑Book: Designing a book that conveys the Holo­caust in Litzmann­stadt ghetto 1939‑1945

This project is a continuation of artistic research in Łódź, Poland during the period 2016 to 2019. It explores innovating book design approaches and challenges our expectations of what reading is. Illustration as tangible objects is another central aspect explored. Holocaust teaching and mediation has since the end of WWII developed certain common design features and color combinations. May new design practices make us understand forgotten or unseen aspects of what happened? The experimentations take place in Bergen, Norway and in workshops in Łódź, Poland. It is planned to be concluded to be part of the 80th commemoration of the children from Litzmannstadt ghetto in Łódź 2022.
