In 2021 we designed together with Zwo/Elf – Büro für Gestaltung, the exhibition «Verborgene Spuren – Jüdische Künstler*innen und Architekt*innen in Karlsruhe 1900–1950» [Hidden Traces. Jewish Artists and Architects in Karlsruhe 1900-1950]
Numerous artists of Jewish origin were involved in the multifaceted cultural life in Karlsruhe in the first third of the 20th century. Since the beginning of the National Socialist regime of terror in 1933, they were systematically excluded, discriminated against, forced into emigration or deported and murdered. Under the title «Hidden Traces. Jewish Artists and Architects in Karlsruhe 1900-1950», the Städtische Galerie Karlsruhe illuminated for the first time in a comprehensive presentation this not only largely forgotten, but also in part irretrievably lost area of Karlsruhe's cultural history. The exhibition is telling the stories of 24 Jewish artists, photographers and architects who originally came from Karlsruhe.
