Mikael Levin: Christina's History
Published by Le Point du Jour (Paris and Cherbourg) in conjunction with the exhibition “Christina’s History” at Le Point du Jour/Cherbourg (March, 2009), Museu Coleccao Berardo/Lisbon (August, 2009), and Musee d’art et d’historie du Judaisme/Paris (2010). This body of work, consisting of more than 180 black and white photographic images, was presented as a multi-projector slide show installation telling the story of the Jewish diaspora from Zgierz, Poland to Lisbon to Guinea-Bissau, which included relatives of the artist. The book’s three chapters show these images in a running horizontal flow, and present a fluid visual narration that formally echoes the flight it depicts. Essays by Francois Chevrier, an art historian and independent curator; Jonathan Boyarin, professor of Modern Jewish Studies at The University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill; and Carlos Schwarz Da Silva, director of the NGO Action for Development, and a cousin of Levin’s.
