All of the exhibition’s works are based on the desire to learn from history in order to improve the future. In some cases, the motifs of references to the years between 1933 and 1945 are overlaid with contemporary or timeless references. For instance Heidrun Hegewald presents several levels of time and reality in her allegorical painting entitled “Cassandra sees a snake’s egg” (“Kassandra sieht ein Schlangenei”) Will the story of the mythological figure of Cassandra be repeated? Her prophetic warnings of destruction went unheeded in ancient Troy. In addition to the feared return of fascism and war, the painting also addresses the problem of patriarchal society, which contributes to the fact that the crier, probably a self-portrait of the artist, is ignored.
