EVA OLTHOF: RETURN TO RIGHTFUL OWNER. Onomatopee, Eindhoven, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 95 pp. 24 x 15 cm. ISBN 9789491677311 In English.
Publisher's description: Where is history "created"? Inspired by this question, visual artist Eva Olthof works on projects in which she researches certain events or locations through testimonials and documentation. Collecting fragments -- her personal photos, archive material, texts and objects -- and searching for boundaries between documentary and imaginary image s, Olthof's new book explores the politics of forgetting, remembering and citing. She takes as her starting point the American Memorial Library in Berlin, built in 1954 as a gift from the American people to West Berlin. Its modern architecture made it an emblem for the American way of life. Purposely located close to the border of Russian-occupied territory, the library also had the goal of attracting East Berliners. Written with Dutch curator Doreen Menda, this publication explores the political history of the library as showcase for American freedom and democracy and the recent revelations of NSA files by Edward Snowden.
