Eva Rothschild's large-scale sculptural compositions explore relationships between surface and structure whilst testing the boundaries between the abstract and figurative.Accompanying a solo exhibition at Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane, Dublin (23 May - 21 September 2014), this volume features a number of recent sculptures by the Irish-born artist alongside a series of photographic portraits of gallery visitors holding snakes.Using diverse materials, such as wood, steel and fibreglass, Rothschild investigates sculptural form by testing the limits of those materials. With references to Minimalism and Constructivism, Rothschild's work aims to invert Modernism's forms and question its utopian ideas.Alongside full-colour illustrations, this volume includes texts by Brian Dillon and Michael Dempsey which closely examine Rothschild's installation at the gallery and her ties to broader art history.

Das Ägypten des frühen 20. Jahrhunderts war nicht nur Drehscheibe für Ägyptenbegeisterte, sondern besaß auch eine deutsche Seite. Der ‚deutschen Kolonie‘ verliehen der Ägyptologe Ludwig Borchardt und seine Ehefrau Mimi Cohen über Jahrzehnte ihre Prägung. Ebenso wie die andern Deutschen jüdischer Herkunft wurden sie nach der Machtübergabe an die Nationalsozialisten von der ägyptendeutschen Gesellschaft, die mehrheitlich auf nationalsozialistische Linie umschwenkte, ausgegrenzt und der Verfolgung ausgesetzt. Zu Passivität sahen sich die Betroffenen nicht verurteilt. Nicht nur das Ehepaar Borchardt setzte umfassende Hilfsaktionen in Gang. Die internationale Ägyptologen- und Orientalistenschaft fühlte sich ebenso zu nachhaltiger Unterstützung verpflichtet, förderte bestehende Initiativen, ermöglichte Verfolgten Flucht und Rettung. Damit übernahm sie, jenseits von wissenschaftlichen Interessen, eine neue Rolle und bewies die Tragfähigkeit der sozialen Beziehungen.

Jüdische Ärzte als Krankenbehandler

Am 30. September 1938 wurde sämtlichen jüdischen Ärzten die Approbation entzogen. Dennoch mussten zurückgebliebene Juden medizinisch versorgt werden, wenn sie krank wurden, vor allem weil man die Arbeitskraft der jüdischen Zwangsarbeiter brauchte. "Arische" Ärzte sollten dies nicht tun, da die Nazis eine diffuse Angst vor Ansteckungsherden hatten und "Arier" und Juden keinen Kontakt miteinander haben durften. Jüdische Ärzte gab es nun aber nicht mehr. Also musste ein neues Konstrukt her: der Krankenbehandler. In Berlin wurden die meisten Krankenbehandler eingesetzt. Für diese Studie konnten erstmalig Informationen zu 368 Krankenbehandlern ausfindig gemacht und zusammengetragen werden. All diese Helfer in großer Not waren in einer gefährlichen Zeit eine wichtige Stütze für krank gewordene oder verletzte Juden. Aber sie gerieten damit auch in schwierige ethische Dilemmata, da sie beispielsweise in das Deportationsgeschehen eingebunden wurden.

Eva Rothschild was born into the upscale Berlin world of the 1920s, an artistic, Cabaret society that lived on the edge between the two World Wars. Her secure world crumbled to pieces with the arrival of Hitler's storm troopers, forcing her parents to flee with their two daughters from Germany to Montevideo, Uruguay. Energetic and alive, she yearned for freedom to express herself in her own fashion, through dance and learning, until she finally took the daunting step of moving to New York City. In her third country, with her third language, she found the life she sought, with Boris Kastel, who was also on a personal life quest. Eva's story covers nearly a century. And it is by no means finished.

In May of 1939 the Cuban government turned away the Hamburg-America Line’s MS St. Louis, which carried more than 900 hopeful Jewish refugees escaping Nazi Germany. The passengers subsequently sought safe haven in the United States, but were rejected once again, and the St. Louis had to embark on an uncertain return voyage to Europe. Finally, the St. Louis passengers found refuge in four western European countries, but only the 288 passengers sent to England evaded the Nazi grip that closed upon continental Europe a year later. Over the years, the fateful voyage of the St. Louis has come to symbolize U.S. indifference to the plight of European Jewry on the eve of World War II. Although the episode of the St. Louis is well known, the actual fates of the passengers, once they disembarked, slipped into historical obscurity. Prompted by a former passenger’s curiosity, Sarah Ogilvie and Scott Miller of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum set out in 1996 to discover what happened to each of the 937 passengers. Their investigation, spanning nine years and half the globe, took them to unexpected places and produced surprising results. Refuge Denied chronicles the unraveling of the mystery, from Los Angeles to Havana and from New York to Jerusalem. Some of the most memorable stories include the fate of a young toolmaker who survived initial selection at Auschwitz because his glasses had gone flying moments before and a Jewish child whose apprenticeship with a baker in wartime France later translated into the establishment of a successful business in the United States. Unfolding like a compelling detective thriller, Refuge Denied is a must-read for anyone interested in the Holocaust and its impact on the lives of ordinary people.

In a world falling to pieces, a new breed of art objects is capturing its fractured allure in three dimensions.UNMONUMENTAL features recent work by thirty contemporary sculptors at the vanguard of their craft, selected by one of contemporary art's top curatorial teams.The sculptures in UNMONUMENTAL are forerunners in a major new artistic development.They are powerful but patently un-heroic; assembled from bits of the world at large, they are sardonic metaphors for our time.The artists featured in the book range from the just-emerged (Tobias Buche, Claire Fontaine, Gedi Sibony) to the internationally renowned (John Bock, Isa Genzken, Rachel Harrison).UNMONUMENTAL is generously illustrated with large full-color photographs of the works, most of which have never before been published.UNMONUMENTAL was created in conjunction with the inaugural exhibition of the New Museum of Contemporary Art's landmark new building, designed by Seijima + Nishazawa / SANAA, on the Bowery in New York.
