even the dead, 2006

C-prints of the artist’s blood on paper.
3 diptyches, each image is 40” x 70” (1 diptych incl. frames, 48” x 156”/ 4’ x 13’)

The title is derived from Theses on the Philosophy of History, by Walter Benjamin:

Only that historian will have the gift of fanning the spark of hope in the
past who is firmly convinced that even the dead will not be safe from the
enemy if he wins. And this enemy has not ceased to be victorious.
