Projections on The Art of Memory

Naomi T. Salmon, Zürich (CH), Weimar

This lecture is about the artist’s drive of personal agenda and history as an artistic strategy in the field of memory and commemoration, it is also a discussion about the politics of the body and the public sphere. Art in public space uses diverse strategies to address its (at times) random audience. Is Memory Art political? What is the role of negation and irritation in formats used by artists to deliver their statements? How does the ephemeral, the performative, and „Other senses“ awakening strategies offer a dialogue that is passive or active, offering a moral opinion statement only? 
Naomi T. Salmon has had numerous solo exhibitions and curated shows within the realms and venues of Memory Art. Her works hang in thematic and permanent exhibitions about the Holocaust and in museums worldwide. She teaches „Freie Kunst“ at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar and carries a Ph.D. degree in Fine Art.
