Matzevot for Everyday Use
Virtual Exhibition: Speculative Cartographies
Matzevot for Everyday Use is a travelling exhibition of photographs that depict buildings, roads, walls and other urban infrastructure which were built using thousands of stolen and destroyed matzevot (Jewish grave markers) during and after the Second World War in Poland.
The work is composed of detailed and evocative photographs of buildings, walls, roads, and other structures, many of which are still marked with Hebrew inscriptions. These images now act as a memorial for the Jewish victims to whom these matzevot belong and act as an archive for this often overlooked history.
