Salomon, Charlotte: Material regarding exhibition (1989-1990)

Archive Collection

Scope and Content

Leaflets, fliers and ephemera documenting an exhibition of the works of Charlotte Salomon, 1998-1999.

Administrative / Biographical History

Charlotte Salomon was born in Berlin in 1917 into a cultured and assimilated middle class Jewish family, and died in Auschwitz in 1943 at the age of 26. 'Life or Theatre?' is the name she gave to a sequence of nearly 800 gouaches she produced between 1940 and 1942. Subtitled 'a play with music', it combines images, texts and musical references to recreate a life scarred both by family tragedy and Nazi persecution, yet interspersed with moments of intense happiness and love.
