The series Misplaced Histories consists of photographs of well known locations like the Giant Wheel in Vienna, the Munich Stadtmuseum or the Berlin Zoo. These are landmarks that were “aryanized” during the Nazi Times and nearly no one remembers it today. In addition to these forgotten histories Krenn brings up questions concerning restitution which in most cases did not happen. He wrote letters to those responsible, analysed their answers and opened new questions. Various exchanges of letters are presented with other text material together with the photos.
