How to Make a Monument (Dis)appear: Stanisław Welbel and Daniel Malone
12th September 2019 at 6 p.m.
Daniel Malone and Stanisław Welbel will discuss their project ‘How to Make a Monument (Dis)Appear’ especially conceived for Ludlow 38 in New York, based on a set of questions regarding the legal status, rights and responsibilities of art in public spaces (both outdoors and in Museums, Universities, etc.) including contemporary forms of censorship and historical revision. It draws on a few very specific stories relating to contemporary figurative art and forms of public monuments found in the former Communist Block, as well as the current debate around the removal of Confederate and other colonialist and/or racist statues in the US.
