About

Ungewisses Manifest 3 - Der Tod von Walter Benjamin. Ezra Pound hinter Gittern

 

The writer and philosopher Walter Benjamin has been living in Paris for several years. In 1939, like all German nationals, he lives in a camp of voluntary volunteers in Nevers. Freed after two months by the help of many friends, he returns to Paris. Fearing the German Wehrmacht, he flees first to Lourdes, then to Marseille. The plan was to cross by ship to the United States. But his journey took him to the Pyrenees, to the border with Spain, Port-Bou, where he committed suicide for fear of being extradited to the Gestapo.

 

Frédéric Pajak's Manifeste incertain is an ambitious book project that comprises a total of nine volumes. In it, the author interweaves text and image to create an enchantingly beautiful work of art. The narrative of the volumes merges in loose sequence; meandering associatively rather than chronologically, linking the author's personal memories with the fates of historical persons.
