A Metalogue Around the Cult of Monuments: Building a Monument of Speech

This roundtable discussion invites a diverse group of specialists from various disciplines to a conversation based on “Der moderne Denkmalkultus, sein Wesen, seine Entstehung" ("The Modern Cult of Monuments: Its Character and Origin"), a 1903 text written by Alois Riegl, a prominent Austrian art historian at the end of 19th century.

There are two rules for any intervention: Participants should understand the previous comment and respond in another language. They need to work collaboratively to understand the discussion and make it flow in a productive way.

This discussion attempts to build a metalogue where the problematic of the monument is discussed within a specific structure to see how new ideas and meanings. Contrasting languages are used as the medium/material for developing a more multifaceted and dynamic conversation.

Possible dates: Exact date and time: TBA - Wednesday or Thusday, June 26-27 2013; Time: 7:00pm

Anahita Hekmat proposes this discussion as part of her project for La Práctica at Beta Local.
