Emily Hass uses archival architectural records of Berlin buildings where Jews and persecuted artists and intellectuals lived and worked in the 1930s. She began this series with her father's childhood home where he lived until 1938, when he and his immediate family escaped to London. Through architecture, her work is concerned with identity, place, and a culture's loss both of individual citizens and of a creative tradition. Included in the project are the former homes and workplaces of Anni Albers, Johannes Itten, Kurt Weill, Otto Dix, and Walter Benjamin.


Emily Hass has been awarded grants from the New York Foundation for the Arts, the McCloy Fellowship in Art, and residencies at the Dora Maar House, the MacDowell Colony, and the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation. Selections from her series Altonaer Strasse were included in the 2011 Heimatkunde exhibition at the Jewish Museum Berlin and are now part of the museum’s permanent collection.
