The History Of Another book. For a number of years, Shimon Attie has created his own photographic palimpsests, projecting historical images onto public spaces and then photographing them, trying to bring our buried layers of memory "I am trying to give visual form to history and memory which is latent in the architecture and landscape of the present, latent but not visible.

Publisher's Description. By projecting archived, black and white images of pre-WWII Roman Jews onto the color background of the contemporary city and onto the ruins of the Roman Empire, Attie situates this "forgotten community" poignantly in the grand historical narrative. In doing so, he recovers their own history,.

Yet my intention was to also raise broader questions about "otherness" within the history of the West more generally. The project also explored the ways in which the city aestheticizes and packages its historical sites for public consumption.

Translation is nowadays everywhere and it plays a great part in every step in the chain of production of the book: writing, publishing and reading. We do not read nor do we write like we did before. Writers (nevertheless readers) have turned away, as least part of them, from a national literature. In contrast to those critics who considered the novel Die Rättin (1986) to be a "doomsday novel," an "apocalyptic feature," a "memorial for humanity," this article introduces the book as a continuation of the Danzig saga, as a perusal of the complete works in which the author attempts to ascertain once again the characters, the requisites, and the scenes of his literary universe.

From the publisher: "For a number of years, Shimon Attie has created his own photographic palimpsests, projecting historical images onto public spaces and then photographing them, trying to bring out buried layers of memory. . . 'I am trying to give visual form to history and memory which is latent in the architecture and landscape of the present, latent but not visible,. . . I have always been interested in memory,' he says. 'I think a lot about the past, about my own past, and about the collective more generally, about the memory of entire communities. More than my therapeutic training, I think my temperament made me interested in revealing layers of a buried or repressed past.' The projected image, Attie says, is a physical embodiment of the process of memory itself. 'Like memory, the projection appears to have substance and materiality, but in fact it does not--it is only photons,' he says. 'It's an illusion.' The projections of historical photographs onto actual sites in the present have a ghostly, immaterial, ephemeral quality of fleeting memory-Alexander Stille."
