Draft Title: Shoah (2009)
http://dts.engad.org

Draft title: Shoah is a media art project by Wilfried Agricola de Cologne, incorporating the artistic activities around “Shoah” and collective trauma caused by totalitarianism, forming the framework for a wide range of artistic activities. Like most projects by Agricola de Cologne, also Draft title: Shoah is built up of the dualism of the project development online and the manifestations in physical space, complementing each other.

sfc-site-logo-04-greyDealing with the Holocaust did not only start when Agricola de Cologne launched on 27 January 2010 – his media art and peace initiative “Shoah Film Collection” as an artistic contribution against racism and antisemitism, but was already part of the artist’s identity from a child. The Fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 had ground breaking influence on the course of his life, when he was confronted with the Nazi history on Polish ground by visiting the memorial sites in Poland, and later Germany and Czech Republik – which was motivating and “sensitizing” him to dedicate a big artistic project and many years of his artistic creativity to the victims of Holocaust by reflecting his experiences and juxtaposed them to the Neofascist manifestations taking place in Germany and many other European countries during the 80ies and 90ies of 20th century. Entitled: “1000 Years, 50 Years and still so terribly young”, this project became the main part of the later project alm-logo-02a“A Living Memorial Spaces of Art” – Memorial project against the Forgetting, Racism, Xenophobia and Antisemitism. 1995-1998 – standing under the Patronage of Ignatz Bubis (1927-1999), the President of the Central Jewish Council of Germany. In 1998, the major part of this project was destroyed by right-wing vandalism. But the memory and the shadows of this project became later in 2000 the basis of ” A Virtual Memorial Foundation” and in 2009 of “Draft title: Shoah”.
