Jacir’s photographs depict the former Benedictine monastery of Breitenau, near <?xml:namespace prefix = "st1" ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><st1:City w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Kassel</st1:place></st1:City>. A prison camp in the Nazi era, it became a girl’s reformatory after World War II. These images as well as other photographs taken in <st1:City w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Kassel</st1:place></st1:City> are accompanied by selections from the artist’s diary entries, which investigate questions around the histories of the represented sites. Recalling Walter Benjamin’s reading of Paul Klee’s Angelus Novus, Buck-Morss’ textual response unravels how truth and collective memory are established and how the inextricable relation between knowledge and power leads to the selection of what is archived and remembered.</FONT></SPAN>
