Resistance Museum of South Holland – curating & photography



When the Resistance Museum of South Holland restyled its semi-permanent exhibition in 2002, we were commissioned to interview a number of people on their idea of resistance. Interview fragments, accompanied by large-sized portrait photographs, were shown as an introduction panel at the museum entrance. The chosen approach was to view resistance as every form of action and thought against injustice and indifference, and not only as an overt act in the context of WWII or other war situations.

Elisa, who was in charge of the new exhibition project, collected also a number of testimonies of eye witnesses and resistance activists of WWII. These are presented in a separate multi-media installation.
