In this lecture, Dr. Rebecka Katz Thor addresses what new monuments are expected to do. Examples from across Europe show the contestations around state-funded commemorations dedicated to difficult heritage, which challenge who and what is commemorated, how historic violence is made visible and how the historical narratives are constructed in public spaces. Drawing upon Marianne Hirsch’s work on postmemory and James Young’s discussion of countermonuments, the lecture considers monuments in terms of different "posts", reparation and multidirectionality.
