As part of Marking Absences – Shifting Narratives
, the Goethe-Institut and 1014 ask New Yorkers how they believe monuments and public art should function. In October, your answers will be displayed on the Goethe-Institut’s storefront at 30 Irving Place in Manhattan.
Marking Absences – Shifting Narratives
is presented by the Goethe-Institut New York and 1014 as part of Shaping the Past
, a project of the Goethe-Institut, Monument Lab, and the Federal Agency for Civic Education. Shaping the Past
connects memory workers across Canada, Mexico, the US, and Germany who have piloted new approaches to shape the past in their own local contexts.
