“Prelude to a Nightmare”
Williams College Museum, Williamstown, MA
and International Tour

This exhibition investigated the cultural conditions in Vienna during the time of the rise of the Third Reich. A major theme of the exhibit explored how great evil can arise within a seemingly civilized society. Over-scaled crimson velvet banners dwarfed the visitor along the exhibit’s main axis, evoking simultaneouly the theatricality and dehumanizing qualities of Hitler’s cultural landscape.
