MAKING THE MEMORY SACRED: Art, Human Rights and Community
A dialogue on art, public space, community and memorialization
hopes to foster a comparative global dialogue between participant artists, designers, scholars and activists around the world to investigate intersections of art, site, human rights, community, and memory.
Participants were initially asked asked to respond to quotes provided by:
Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett, NYU
Hiroshi Sunairi, NYU
Steven Zeitlin, Citylore
And then to respond to each other’s posts.
The dialogue is ongoing and organic.
The curated online dialogue is an interdepartmental effort partnered with the A/P/A Institute at NYU, NYU’s Center for Media, Culture and History/Center for Religion and Media, NYU Steinhardt’s Department of Art and Art Professions and the Asian American Arts Alliance (a4) and a4’s Locating The Sacred Festival.
Making the Memory Sacred is a project of the A/P/A Institute Media And Documentation Lab (MADLAB)
