Abstract

This thesis is an effort to come to terms with the affective and theoretical implications of Ydessa Hendeles' exhibition of contemporary art, documentary photographs and vernacular objects entitled Partners , which was held at the Haus der Kunst in Munich, Germany, November 7 th , 2003 to February 15 th , 2004. It looks at Hendeles' practice as a collector as a means of securing an identity in the wake of the trauma of the Holocaust, the particular performance the exhibition asks the viewer to enact, the multiple ironies that arise throughout the show and their consequences, as well as the show's function as a counter-monument to the Third Reich and a memorial of Pogromnacht . Overall, it is an effort to discern how the exhibition speaks to the issues surrounding the representation of the Holocaust as they pertain to personal and cultural identity and the construction of history.
