Summary

Between 1992-93 Places of Remembrance (Memorial in the Bavarian Quarter, Berlin-Schöneberg was inaugurated by Stih & Schnock, a Berlin-based artist duo, formed by Renata Stih, Professor at the Berlin University of Applied Sciences and curator at the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale, and Frieder Schnock, PhD in Art History.

80 brightly printed signs are put up on lampposts, depicting colorful images on the one side and condensed versions of anti-Jewish Nazi rules and regulations passed between 1933 and 1945 in black and white on the reverse side. Together, the words and images force passers-by to remember the almost-forgotten history of this neighborhood, where Albert Einstein and Hannah Arendt once lived. Dispersed throughout the area the memorial becomes a metaphor of the daily deprivation of rights and humiliation of Jews during the Nazi era.
