When We Were Soldiers… once and young (WWWS)
BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES • Brooklyn Navy Yard • 19 September - 24 October 2015
When We Were Soldiers… once and young (WWWS), a photographic installation by German artist and social activist Bettina WitteVeen, is one of the most ambitious installations to be staged in the Brooklyn Navy Yard in recent years. It is also the first time that an artist has been given the use of the building where soldiers were treated from the American Civil War onwards to World War ll, and which has been closed to the general public. The Brooklyn Navy Yard location is in keeping with WitteVeen’s philosophy of using historically significant sites for installations to underscore her humanitarian message.
Presented as a visual poem, WWWS will weave together over 100 black and white and color analog photographs culled from historic archives, sculptures in the form of large crosses and a walk-in altar with a sound installation. The installation, including WitteVeen's wide-ranging and visually rich photographs, will philosophically and artistically explore the depth of humanity’s collective shadow as it finds its ultimate expression in war and genocide.
