Parallel temporalities are interweaved in “DIRECT TRANSIT”—a project by Austrian American artist and family-historian Fabian Erik Patzak that began in 2017. He tra- ces the complex flight (history, past) of his Jewish ancestors from Vienna (across the continents) to New York City in the tragic era of the late-1930s.
