Workshop #1 – Cities and Memory: Monuments, Publics, and the Conflicts of History
Discussion Begins @
11:10am / Friday Feb. 5th
How do we memorialize historical events, most especially when those events are not singular, linear, or even history for many, but continuous living arrangements that are yet to recognize any sense of finality or definitive social transformation? For the first workshop discussion in Fate is Kind: Abstraction & Patterning in a Life with Others Powderhorn neighbor and artist Xavier Tavera will join our discussion as we think through the role of monuments and memorials, the events of the MPLS Uprising, and the manner by which monuments as historical markers act as specific objects which can record, obscure, empower, and / or manipulate People’s History.
