Personal and Public Remembrance

In this room we deal with personal experience when it comes to remembering or the interaction with memorial sites. Our assumption was that monuments more often do not invoke specific dates, events, facts or more generally spoken historical aspects, but rather confront us in a more emotional way. In this room we tried to find answers to the question of whether monuments make enough room for individuality when it comes to remembering or if people involved need the large monuments that were put in place to commemorate the events so dear to their hearts. Another goal is to analyse how different generations are affected by the same monument. Here you can find examples of national and local monuments.
