Installation: selection of 50 archival inkjet prints from 150 found imagesCourtesy of the artist

While living in Berlin in 2007, the artist Marc Adelman noticed that many of the profile pictures on a local internet-dating site for gay men had been photographed at the city’s imposing Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe. The photographs juxtapose casually posed, flirtatious figures with the severe abstract forms of the memorial. Adelman assembled 150 of these found photographs in grids that correspond to the memorial’s own serial columns.
