Yolocaust is a project by Israeli satirist and author Shahak Shapira that explores our commemorative culture by combining selfies from the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin with footage from Nazi extermination camps. The selfies were found on Facebook, Instagram, Tinder and Grindr. Comments, hashtags and “Likes” that were posted with the selfies are also included.

About 10,000 people visit the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe every day. Many of them take goofy pictures, jump, skate or bike on the 2,711 concrete slabs of the 19,000 m² large structure.

The exact meaning and role of the Holocaust Memorial are controversial. To many, the grey stelae symbolize gravestones for the 6 Million Jews that were murdered and buried in mass graves, or the grey ash to which they were burned to in the death camps.

Bruce Nauman Cruising To Drake On The Block

Music: Shut It Down, Drake

Bruce Nauman Cruising to Drake on the Block (2010) is a very public and private joke all at once. Yes, it is playful and supposed to make you laugh. Yet, its titling and questioning of what role “context” and “language” play in reading physical movement, it is also about space, about sexuality, about the parading of ones gender, toeing the line between public and private. Nauman made Walking in an Exaggerated Manner around the Perimeter of a Square (1967-68) and it rocked because it was contrapposto in motion, it was providing a new vehicle for sculpture’s S Curve. It was deeply art historical. Yet, it was also about dance, and exercise, and, contextualized in its era, it sprung out of a period of time where radical performance was gaining momentum. That piece, redone as public sculpture, or within public space, could very well be just a guy shaking his booty to Drake as he goes for his morning walk. What if that conversation could take place? What would it sound like—look like?
