Helga Michie, twin sister of Ilse Aichinger, came to London with a Kindertransport in 1939. In the mid-1960s she began working as a visual artist, creating multifaceted, expressive graphic work in which past horrors of persecution and displacement return almost like dreams.
Professor Christine Ivanovic, editor of Helga Michie. I am Beginning to Want What I Am, will give an illustrated talk honouring the artist, who passed away in September 2018. There will also be a reading of Helga Michie's poems by High Rix, the artists son-in-law.
