description

"Die Toten" is an artist's book depicting individuals killed in Germany by acts of terrorism. "Beginning in 1967 with the killing of student Benno Ohnesorg at a demonstration in Berlin to the 1993 death of Federal Border Police official Michael Newrzella and the terrorist Wolfgang Grams, “Die Toten” documents 26 years in which altogether over 100 humans who found death by force. All stand in connection with the escalation of force and terrorism, which has its origins the late 1960's. The book tries to document the extent of the number of victims graphically. All pictures in the book come from the printed media of the time. It is an attempt to show the events to younger Germans and reflect the history of the recent past." -- text adapted from German to English from the book's back cover. Book also contains biographic notes about individuals depicted in images. All texts in German.
