der neunte tag

Simon Wachsmuth’s installation Der Neunte Tag (The Ninth Day) explores how history is “charged” and “constructed.” The title of his project connects two historical events – the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem, which is commemorated on the ninth day of the month of Av, and the so-called Reichspogromnacht (also known as “night of broken glass,” or “Kristallnacht” by the Nazis ) on November 9, 1938. By referring to the common aspect of these two seemingly disparate events in Jewish history – the ongoing hostility and destruction of Jewish life – the artist connects the two events in one symbolic gesture.
