These workshops are a knowledge exchange through which I share my knowledge about the history of the relationship between public architecture, memory and monuments. I also create a space where individuals and communities share their knowledge and perspectives about public monuments that stand in their community, or are in the process of being removed.
Questions are asked orally and physically on pieces of neon paper. Questions include: Where are your monuments? Where are your landmarks? What will monuments look like in the future? What places are sacred to you? What spaces are sacred to you? How often do you interact with monuments? Do monuments mean anything to you? When was the last time you interacted with a monument?
