Wrestling with Memory

Hosted By: CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center (Indiana)

Photographer and writer Jason Francisco will speak about the contemporary landscape of the Jewish past in eastern Europe—at once a landscape of memory and a lifeworld, that memory often misses. An American Jew with deep experience in Poland, Ukraine, Belarus, and Lithuania for many years, Francisco has been a keen observer of the ways cultures of remembering and forgetting interact. Francisco’s talk will feature key works in his artistic journey, including his critically acclaimed project Alive and Destroyed: A Meditation on the Holocaust in Time (Daylight Books, 2021).

Jason Francisco (born in 1967 in California) is an artist working primarily in photography and at the intersection of photography and writing. His works—documentary in spirit and conceptualist in method—focus on trauma and historical memory and new directions in the art of witness. Francisco’s most recent book is Alive and Destroyed: A Meditation on the Holocaust in Time (Daylight Books, 2021). Many of his projects—photo works, web-based installations, experimental films, hybrid photo-text writings, reportages, essays, and poems in translation—are available online at www.jasonfrancisco.net.
