Liberation In Progress (Leykam/Graz, 2012)

‘So It Goes’ traces the history of three crashed American B-24 bomber planes in Pöllau (Austria) in WWII.
In contrast to the fallen German soldiers who have their memorials and being remembered by the local population, the soldiers who liberated Austria from Nazi occupation died anonymously: Their story is not part of the collective memory.

The series was part of collaborative project initated by Josef Schützenhöfer: ‘Liberation In Progress’. A book of the same name was published by Leykam/Graz (2012). The project was exhibited in Stadtmuseum Graz (2012) and during the European Capital of Culture in Maribor (2012).
