Those Blue Skies

A film by Adrian Kelterborn


In recent years, the Belgian photographer Anton Kusters has visited all 1,078 former Nazi concentration camp sites in Europe and taken a Polaroid photo of the blue sky at each location. The unbelievable number of concentration camp sites and the fact that the growing generation can hardly get an idea of them, leads Anton Kusters to the question: How can the unimaginable be shown in pictures today?

Kusters is not alone with this question. In countries such as Switzerland, Germany, Austria and Poland, politicians, artists, and the general public are asking themselves the question of how to renew the culture of remembrance during a critical time when the last contemporary witnesses are dying out and trust in images and narratives is rapidly dwindling in the face of phenomena such as "Deep Fake" and "Fake News“.
