Ladders - Šamorin, Slovakia, 1998

Part of an installation in a former Synagogue in Šamorin.
How the building of the former synagogue had been used mirrored the changing political landscape. During the time of the cold war, the synagogue was used by the Russian army as a store place for their military equipment.
Today the building provides space for exhibitions, concerts and other cultural activities.
