Fuck You Hitler: Mein Kampf Exhibit at the CJM $5

FUCK YOU HITLER.

A Jew after my own heart, Linda Ellia has made an art of defacing relics of Nazism.  In 2005 Ellia came across a French translation of Hitler’s infamous memoir Mein Kampf (which means “Our Struggle” in English).  Holding the thick manifesto in her hands, she felt an immediate visceral response of horror.  So, after taking her anger out on about 30 of the pages herself, Ellia invited hundreds of artists, musicians, writers, Holocaust victims, poets, students, filmmakers, and some random Jews to deface (i.e. make art of) the rest of the book.  The results were compiled into a book and, now, a museum exhibit.  “Our Struggle: Responding to Mein Kampf” begins on February 11th at the Contemporary Jewish Museum, which will be exhibiting 600 of the altered pages.

And if you go on a Thursday after 5pm, it only costs $5 bucks to get in!

About the author

Chloe - Pennywise Reporter

Chloe's youth was split between California and Kauai, frolicking on a macadamia nut farm in the tropics and landing finally in the Bay Area. Raised by super-Jew hippies, and the youngest of three sisters, Chloe learned early the virtues of thrift, economy, and green living. To the chagrin of her parents (who hoped, of course, for a Jewish doctor or lawyer), Chloe has put her degree from UC Berkeley to great use by becoming a folk singer. As "Chloe Makes Music" she plays shows throughout SF and beyond, donning vintage frocks, selling handmade merch, and pinching pennies as she sings for her supper. Calling Berkeley home for the last six years, you can think of Chloe as the website's East Bay Correspondent, opening your eyes to the hippie-filled, tree-hugging, organic-loving, vegan-eating, but way-overlooked and awesome assets of Berkeley, Oakland, and beyond.

    Mein Kampf actually translates as My Struggle, but since you are broke you may not have actually been able to afford German lessons.
