BERLIN.- Museum für Fotografie Berlin presents Simone Mangos - The Ideology of Memory, on view 24th August - 4th November 2007. In 1998, Simone Mangos began to research the site of the former Ministerial Gardens in Berlin and subsequently the emergence of the 'Memorial for the Murdered Jews of Europe'. Her works explore the different stages in the memorial building process; the controversies, reactions and campaigns, which took place around them; memory and its representation.

At the Museum für Fotografie, Simone Mangos will be showing photographic work, and the ruined Kaisersaal has inspired her to reproduce a historical construction from the memorial site in life size. The installation will be based on the translation of a found document into a three dimensional form. The work will include found, discarded industrial shelving, accumulated over years in the Museum's neglected non-public rooms.

The Ideology of Memory seeks to establish a dialogue about the ways in which we choose to remember, and examines some of the implications our forms of commemoration have for the understanding of history.
