Title: Towards Todtnauberg, 2014, 5:40
Towards Todtnauberg is a dialogue among different arts about the moral responsibility of culture. The starting point is an enigmatic conversation between Celan and Heidegger.

On 24th. July the Jewish poet Paul Celan and Martin Heidegger gathered in Todnauberg. The meeting took place in the famous Black Forest hut, owned by the philosopher, who never explained his relationship with the Nazism. Celan lost most of his family in the Holocaust. Both of them kept silence about that conversation.

Based on the book “Claroscuro del Bosque” by José Luis Gómez Toré (poems) and Marta Azparren (drawings).
