Jochen Gerz

Gerz was born in Berlin in 1940. Now lives in Ireland. Although he decided to study abroad twice, in London in 1959 and in Basel, Switzerland from 1961 to 1966, he belongs to a generation which experienced the Fifties in Germany as a continuum that didn t end with the decade itself but rather led to a different social atmosphere some time around 1968. In his study of people born in Germany between 1938 and 1948, Heinz Bude characterizes this generation as follows: "As long as no other history exists, the generation of children born during the war will have to bear their parent s history".
