Shaping the Past

How does the past take shape? What happens in the process of coming to terms with the past? What social repercussions are associated with the rooting of history in monuments and memorials? How can those narratives be shifted or upended through alternative, innovative approaches to memorialization? These questions and many others are at the center of our project, Shaping the Past.

What power drives art to change? What causes new forms of expression and new styles? How does the new come into the world? American and German theoreticians show how the arts continue to develop in sudden leaps and bounds from the tension between popular and elite tendencies.
