Taking Jochen Gerz’s project 63 Jahre danach / 63 years after as a case study, we will examine, analyze and open a set questions: What exactly is public space today? Do we today have a single conception of the public? How can a memorial be conceptualized today? What happens to events and memories that are not part of public memory and public history? How can a ‘counter memory’ be defined? How should we consider a monument that does not exist anymore and cannot participate in the circulation of representations?
This course combined theory and practice and was through artistic investigation, workshops, reading groups, (guest) lectures and interviews.
