Amelie Sachs’ final Diploma Project “We Are The Granddaughters Of The Witches You Could Not Burn” is currently exhibited at Neighbours Café in Göttingen and as part of the outdoor group exhibition „Identity, Courage, Love“ in Hannover, Germany.
Project description of Amelie Sachs final project: The witch hunts of the early modern period are among the darkest chapters in European history. Measured in terms of the country’s population, Denmark was one of the most important regions for witch hunts. Driven by the mostly negative image of the witch as an unmarried, childless, old woman, Amelie Sachs set out to find contemporary perspectives on the subject of witchcraft during her stay abroad in Denmark. An everyday world opened up in which women express their connection to nature and feminist ideals and reclaim the concept of the witch for themselves and see it as an act of self-empowerment. According to the claim “We Are The Granddaughters Of The Witches You Could Not Burn”.
The outdoor group exhibition “Identity, Courage, Love“ opened in Hannover on June 16 and runs till June 25.
