Innovative Forms to Memory Culture

The Goethe-Instituts of North America, together with Monument Lab Philadelphia and the Bundeszentrale für Politische Bildung / bpb (German Federal Agency for Civic Education) are proud to present Shaping the Past: Memory Month: a month-long virtual and in-person program series highlighting and discussing ongoing critical memory interventions in sites and spaces, and in particular, monuments, in North America and Germany. The program features Monument Lab transnational Fellows, as well as prominent international voices in the field.  

Shaping the Past is a partnership between Monument Lab, the Goethe-Institut, and the Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung / bpb (German Federal Agency for Civic Education). The project connects to the activist and artistic work of local, national, and transnational movements as a reflection of memory culture, and discusses new perspectives on forms of memory.
