Additional information

Join curatorial fellow Peter Murphy for a closer look at Wolf Vostell’s Treblinka (1967), a screenprint on paper that examines the circulation of photographs from Nazi death camps in film, television, and books. By adding vibrant colors to a historical image of women and children moments before their murder, Vostell challenges viewers to consider what it means when images of horrific tragedy become a form of popular media.
