WHO  IS  FOR  SALE  ?

A conceptual artwork

The conceptual artwork “Who is for sale?” was inspired by the 1941 essay ‘Who goes Nazi?’ by Dorothy Thompson (published by Harper's magazine). The article explores why people stay silent or actively participate in cultural destruction and evil, concluding that it is a universal character flaw and part of the human condition. This work reflects on the parallels between recent US elections and similar events in world history.

 

Dorothy Thompson traveled widely through Germany, Austria, and France through the late 1930’s.

 

“Nazism has nothing to do with race or nationality. It appeals to a certain type of mind.”

 

“Kind, good, happy, gentlemanly, secure people never go Nazi”

 

“Those who haven’t anything in them to tell them what they like and what they don’t - whether it is breeding, or happiness, or wisdom, or a code, however old-fashioned or however modern, go Nazi”
