Recurating the Past: Thälmann's Mauer

Fakultät: Gestaltung, Studiengang: Public Art and New Artistic Strategies (M.F.A.)

During the past two semesters, students of the international MFA program „Public Art and New Artistic Strategies“ focused on the historical, political, social and cultural issues affecting public space and our ability to act within it. In "(UN)Disciplined Body", students asked how it is possible to use a listed public monument, such as the former SED-Party training school in Erfurt, as a stage for artistic interventions. In "City Lab Mostar", students explored the divided city of Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovinia and responded to the context of a city reconstructing itself, physically as well as culturally and socially.
This program of events offers a glimpse into the pratice of working in public space, as well as the chance to see examples of the completed works.

"Recurating the Past: Thälmann's Mauer"
Angela Parslow

Carl-August-Allee, Ernst Thälmann Denkmal

To coincide with the theme, "Who Curates the Past?" Angela Parslow has made a small intervention at the site of Weimar's Ernst Thälmann Monument on Carl-August-Allee for the duration of The Summary. The work questions remembrance and monumentalism in relation to historical, political and physical location.
