Nach:Denkmal by Fuchsbau e.V.
The Nach:Denkmal project deals with cultural memory and commissions ten artists with migration and refugee backgrounds to design “contra monuments” for the urban space of Hanover, to undertake new forms of interference and to publicly position the history of their communities.
“Germany has a lot of catching up to do in dealing with its colonial past. What is needed is a critical examination of power structures and narratives. The project expands the current discourse by offering a different perspective on our history and of what we consider worth remembering and preserving”, says the jury.
