An online discussion event that explores how public art can play a role in building greater empathy and understanding, leading towards structural change through new ways of memorialising.

Memorials are intrinsically linked to a vision of the past and our relationship to the history of a particular territory. Can we find a more imaginative, nuanced way of making memorials? What if memorials were used as opportunities to speculate on future alternatives and scenarios rather than symbolising and reinforcing past memories?

How can we rethink the memorial? is moderated by Neysa Page-Lieberman and Jane M. Saks, Co-Founders and Co-Artistic Directors of Monuments to Movements. Speakers include artist duo, Elmgreen & Dragset and artist group, Raqs Media Collective.
