About the
Exhibition

Letters that connect two people on two sides of unsurmountable walls: these are the basis of the intervention by Gabriela Golder in the exhibition Sol LeWitt's Wall. Performed. They report of a life in exile marked by persecution and repression, they tell a tale of how one can maintain emotional bonds, how to carry on, how stories of love, fear, pain, death, exile, children and survival are shared. At the conclusion of the interventions, Gabriela Golder tackles the question of memory and connection. A plea for us all to share, yet also to preserve experiences, both real and potential, to use them as a starting point for looking out into the future.
