The photo series consists of five close ups of Alexandra Reill’s installation in public space reflecting NS-past in Austria and trying to create the opportunity to unveil myths of denial that are potentially undetected and classified as “normal” – by reflecting the myths, the past and what has been passed down to grandchildren in the sujets.

For the installation, card sujets from the series WOULD WE SAY NO ? I were marked with black crosses as a sign for resistance against false beliefs. In the framework of Südwind Festival, they were laid out on a garden table surrounded by four chairs; people were invited to take cards with them or to have a seat. On this occasion, Alexandra Reill went into talks with the visitors of the festival to discuss contemporary myths of denial regarding NS-past in Austria.
