New work -- original and found images, excerpts from the poetry of Paul Celan, and Heideggerian terms – this is a suite of giclee prints with gold leaf that examines the troubled and precarious relationship between Celan, a poet who survived the Holocaust, and Martin Heidegger, the philosopher who paid dues to the Nazi party from 1933 until 1945 and never retracted his position. While quite a bit is known about the influence of Heidegger on Celan, almost nothing is known about the discussion they had at Heidegger’s Black Forest hut in 1967. All translations of Celan’s poetry into English are by John Felstiner. Enter through the site above, or click here.
