Title: Monument as Archive: artistic strategies from anti- to meta-memorial
Authors: Kluszczynski, Ryszard W.
Keywords: Media Art
Media Art Histories
Public Space
Collective Memory
Grass-Root Memorization
Living Memorial
Issue Date: 1-Nov-2017
Abstract: In Kluszczynski's talk, he will address the issue of art that challenges colonization of social consciousness and collective memory. He will focus on selected works of Krzysztof Wodiczko, Sanja Iveković, and Masaki Fujihata to discuss different fields of such activity: the public space control and marginalization of the Stranger; the historical policy and its social consequences; the cyberspace and grass-root social memorization. Kluszczynski will discuss deconstruction of the monument as their artistic strategies (anti-monument, living memorial, meta-monument).
