In Street Art: New Addition to the Dresden Museum of Military HistoryJuxtapoz // Sunday, 16 Oct 2011
Dresden’s Military History Museum opens to the public this Saturday after seven years of renovation. Grabbing your immediate attention is architect Daniel Libeskind’s aggressive sharp grey wedge made of steel and glass that was added to the building.
We were reminded of Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse Five and his writing of his experience of the bombing of Dresden. The city was completely leveled and as one survivor explains, “It is not possible to describe! Explosion after explosion. It was beyond belief, worse than the blackest nightmare.”
