“Silent Songs” is the result of a formal and conceptual intervention made by Claudia Hans into the book Songs for My Grandmother, written by Agnes Louise Dean in 1945 (the year the Second World War ended).
Hans has intervened the texts of the books and complemented them with photographs and images, transforming the volume into a contemporary piece that narrates simultaneously the life of her grandmother, the events of the Holocaust, and the emigration of her grandparents to Mexico.
The intervention reveals a parallelism between the history of Mexico and that of Russia and Poland, her grandparents’ countries of origin.
