Vernissage and Bookrelease
– Key to the past –
Is our perception of the past not often similar to a room full of safes? Behind every door, there is a small black box full of hidden memories. The memory itself is a bank with our most valuable treasures and darkest secrets: the experiences and emotions of our lives. With the right key, the relevant access, this well-shielded world opens itself to us and its secrets are revealed.
The photo series Trust and Savings by Christian Voigt opens these doors for us on a real, historical location and lets us study the secrets of a past era in the former vault of a no longer operating bank in Chicago.
