A guide from the Mauthausen memorial site reports

Adam Schmidtberger talks about his work as a mediator at the Mauthausen/Gusen concentration camp memorial. His own family history also plays a role in his tours: his grandparents' farm bordered the area of the Gusen concentration camp. How did the relationship between the concentration camp and society develop?

4.00 p.m.
Artist talk with Marko Zink

The artist Marko Zink (* 1975), who comes from Vorarlberg and lives in Vienna, approaches the horror of the Holocaust through the medium of analogue photography. His motif is Mauthausen - a place and synonym for the extermination of tens of thousands of people. Zink punches, boils or treats the films he uses with chlorine and ink before exposing them. As a result, the photographs look like historical found objects and tell of the extermination of the people depicted as well as of the eradication of memory. The photo artist reflects on the transformation from a crime scene to a memorial site and in the process conducts a multi-layered search for traces.

Followed by a signing session with Marko Zink in the museum shop.

5.00 p.m.
Fridays at 5: Mercilessly persecuted. The story of a Vorarlberg resistance group
