Title Mediating Memory: strategies of interaction in public art and memorials
Author(s) Björgvinsson, Erling ; Høg Hansen, Anders
Date 2011
English abstract
Abstract The article addresses how a selection of participatory art and memorial projects have engaged with public memory and interaction. The intention has to been to explore the tension between the artists’ strategies - and the actual life span and use of the art works by its audiences. The authors interviewed the artists Esther Shalev- Gerz, Alfredo Jaar and Rafael Lozano Hemmer (during 2008 and 2009) and examined specific works. In addition, one of the literally ‘ground-breaking’ works of process art by Robert Smithson, Partially Buried Woodshed, was included in the analysis of cases that have provoked interesting social or collective memory debates and community interaction around public art.
