Charlotte Salomon: "Life? Or Theater?"

In the early years of World War II, Charlotte Salomon—a 23-year-old Jewish artist from Berlin—fled to the south of France where she shut herself into a hotel room and spent two years feverishly painting the history of her life. She called it "Life? or Theater?: A Play With Music," an astounding body of over 1,300 powerfully drawn and expressively colored gouache paintings conceived as an operetta on paper. Her singular creation and only major work survived her death at Auschwitz and stands as a testament to Salomon’s life and artistic vision. This exhibition of nearly 300 paintings offers a rare, first-hand opportunity to witness this amazing masterpiece. June 19-September 21, 2014.

Volunteers Search for Identity18 Project

IDENTITY18 PROJECT is a project of Chicago Connect in collaboration with the Russian Jewish Division and Holocaust Community Services. Jewish 18 Identity derives its name from the letters in the Hebrew word for life, Chai (חי), which according to Jewish mysticism represents the lucky number 18. Thus aptly named, IDENTITY18 aims to explore the question of cultural/social/ethnic identity of Jewish Holocaust survivors and their families from the Former Soviet Union. A series of interviews will be conducted in conjunction with artistic renderings of the subjects to capture the substance and spirit of the Holocaust survival stories, immigration journeys and experiences through the lens of Jewish identity. A documentary, a publicly accessible website with a repository of photos, portraits and stories, as well as a haggadah will be created as a result, to reflect their experiences. Volunteers, who can speak/write Russian & English are needed to interview the survivors and their families. A training for the volunteers will be provided to help conduct the interviews. Volunteers are needed to film the interviews as well.

Charlotte Salomon: "Life? Or Theater?"

In the early years of World War II, Charlotte Salomon—a 23-year-old Jewish artist from Berlin—fled to the south of France where she shut herself into a hotel room and spent two years feverishly painting the history of her life. She called it "Life? or Theater?: A Play With Music," an astounding body of over 1,300 powerfully drawn and expressively colored gouache paintings conceived as an operetta on paper. Her singular creation and only major work survived her death at Auschwitz and stands as a testament to Salomon’s life and artistic vision. This exhibition of nearly 300 paintings offers a rare, first-hand opportunity to witness this amazing masterpiece. June 19-September 21, 2014.
