A Swedish art gallery owner defended his gallery’s decision to show a
painting made of Holocaust victims’ ashes as “having no moral flaws.”
Martin Bryder, who owns a gallery in Lund, told Sverige Radio that he
“sees no moral problem or flaw with exhibiting” the painting created by
artist Carl Michael von Hausswolff using the ashes of victims from the
Majdanek extermination camp.
The exhibition is scheduled to open at the Martin Bryder Gallery on Dec. 15. According to a local newspaper, Sydsvenskan, von Hausswolff had collected the ashes more than 20 years ago.
