Antypomniki jako przedstawienia (nie)pamięci w mieście [(Counter)monuments as presentations of (un) memory in the city]
2016 (Polish)In: Znaki (nie) pamięci. Teoria i parktyka upamiętnienia w Polsce / [ed] Małgorzata Fabiszak, Anna W. Brzeźińska, Marcin Owsiński, Kraków, Poland: Universitas , 2016, 1, 57-71 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
The article aims to reflect upon the possibility to visualize the collective memory and (un)memory in the urban space. The author focuses on a kind of evolution of the ways of commemoration: from the traditional monuments raised in the public space of the city in order to commemorate an event or an eminent person important to the community, to the (counter)monuments as a contemporary, critical reaction of the artists to what is often deliberately (un)remembered, omitted in the historical narrations or wanders verging on the collective memory. The analysis of the installation titled „The Missing Image” (2015) by Ruth Beckermann will serve as an example of possible, multiple interpretation of the function and multitude of meanings of the (counter)monuments in the urban space, in the context of visualizations of the (un)memory.
