Entering the World of Rachel Marker

Posted by Alla Efimova on Friday March 8 2013

Last month, many of our exhibition visitors were moved to sit down at this desk in the gallery and pen a message to Rachel Marker.

Here is one of them:

Dearest Rachel,

I am so inspired by your letters to Kafka—the ways in which you weave your own Library of Threads. A filament of fact, a skein of fiction into an epistolary tapestry of history. We are each our own Penelope—and our own Rachel—undoing, redoing, foretelling, forestalling, living on hope and memory.



On your visit to the exhibition (which runs through June 28, 2013), enter Rachel Marker’s world of history, politics, literature and the arts.

There you can encounter Franz Kafka,  Vladimir Lenin, Gertrude Stein, and the still-living Alice Herz-Sommer, as well as with other arresting–if fictional–characters, such as Rachel Spiegel, Moira Marker, Maria Sanchez, the Blind Woman, and the Mute Players.

Come pick up a pen at the desk in the gallery! You are invited to contribute your own letter in Moira Roth’s arresting world of Rachel Marker, witness to history.
