The Art of Remembrance: Alice Salomon
Exiled from Germany in 1937, Alice Salomon died in New York, alone, in August 1948. e same year in December, DESSA was born Deborah Sharon Abeles in Southern Rhodesia, today Zimbabwe. Social reformer, educator, feminist, economist and peace activist, Alice Salomon (1876–1948) founded the Social School for Women in Berlin in 1908.
She wrote 28 professional books and over 500 articles and yet is relatively unknown outside the circle of social studies. DESSA uses various techniques to create a tangible approach to Alice Salomon’s intensive and extensive life: paintings, collages, objects, installations and an imaginary conversation together form a thorough narrative.
