Right within the city – Part 1
17th May 2019 | 11:30 - 13:00
The cooperative of Zentralwerk dedicates part of its activities to that place’s history as a sub-camp of Flossenbürg concentration camp. Today, Zentralwerk’s role as a main site of Dresden’s remembrance of National-Socialist crimes comes with a problematic function: In a climate of far-right mobilization, it can serve as one site at which the violence of German ultra-nationalism is ‘deposited’. Countering such a removal of the past from today’s events, I wish to contribute from the perspective of radical-democratic architecture and planning to the task of keeping this history present and public.
Part 1 of my contribution is an overview of my artistic work at historical sites of National Socialism in Linz, Vienna and Warsaw.
