What role do artists play in reimagining the construction of our public space?
Tuesday, 19 April, 7:30 p.m. at Goethe Institut, Boston, MA
An in-person conversation between artists Mischa Kuball and Juan Obando, moderated by Devin Morris of The Teacher’s Lounge.
Building on Goethe Institut Boston's last conversation in partnership with Now + There on global monuments, this panel asks what role artists play in reimagining the construction of our public spaces? Exploring how artists can intervene with monuments and create new modes of commemoration and community, artists Mischa Kuball and Juan Obando will share their respective practices. Inspired by localized collective action in communities worldwide, they will discuss current and upcoming projects that consider the afterlife of a monument as well as alternative approaches to visualizing site-specific trauma. After brief presentations from the artists, Devin Morris from the Teacher's Lounge will moderate a discussion about reimagining the future of monuments.
Goethe Institut is looking forward to welcoming you at the Goethe-Institut Boston for an in-person event, but if you find you cannot make it, you are invited to watch the live-stream at YouTube.
