Purity Beats Everything
Jon Bang Carlsen
Jon Bang Carlsen Retrospective
"A little lie may not be believed at all, but a big lie, if repeated with sufficient vigour and frequency, will eventually take deep root in the minds of the uninformed masses."
Josef Goebbels’ words resonate well into our time. Purity Beats Everything is about growing up in an idyllic country neighboring Germany. An uneasy silence reveals itself as the absence of truth about my Scandinavian culture's involvement with the incomprehensible evil that stems from trying to "purify" other cultures. Following the tale of two Auschwitz survivors we are lead into a devastating past that leads straight into our future.
