Taking its starting point in the First World War, the exhibition Missing Sons forges a link to the present. Photographs mark the cultural and historical turning point that brought death and bereavement to millions of people. All that remains of those who never returned home are names, engraved in long commemorative lists at memorial sites all over the world. How did people deal with loss, remembrance and grief? Missing Sons complements the exhibition 1914. The Avant-Gardes at War and addresses these very questions, not only in view of wars between nations but also with regard to dictatorships, civil war and the terror attack of 11 September 2001.
