Event Description

The first New Mexico exhibit of the Holocaust photographs of Karl Koenig, author of Fragments: Architecture of the Holocaust, An Artist's Journey Through the Camps.

Seventy years ago the Allies invaded Europe and the Soviets liberated the first of the Nazi death camps. The Holocaust continued for several more months but the world was coming to end the killing.

Twenty years ago, the world renowned photographer Karl Koenig began a ten year project of photographing the ruins of ten of the Nazis' concentration camps. He invented a print making process,gumoil printing, and applied it to his Holocaust photographs, creating powerful, evocative works of art. These photographs have been shown in museums and galleries all over the world, and are now coming home to Albuquerque for an exhibit at the Albuquerque Photographers' Gallery from August 16th through September 30th.  The opening reception is August 16, 5:00 – 9:00 p.m. In addition to large prints of the work, the ones shown in the original exhibition first held at the Houston Holocaust Museum, a few original gumoil prints from the series will be available for purchase as will copies of Koenig's book, Fragments: Architecture of the Holocaust, An Artist's Journey Through the Camps.

Albuquerque Photographers' Gallery is located in Albuquerque's Old Town at 303 Romero Street. You'll find it on the second floor, in the Northeast corner of Plaza Don Luis, across the street to the west of the church. (There is an elevator on the south side of the building.) The gallery will be open during the exhibition every day from 10 A.M. until 6 P.M. Further information is available at the gallery's website, http://www.abqphotographersgallery.com/.
