Conference: Counter-Monuments and Para-Monuments(WiSe 21/22)
Over the last decades, survivors of right-wing terror in Germany and families of victims have fought to reclaim their right to remembrance in the public space. These fights have been with city officials, with neighbors, with politicians, with artists, with media figures, and with law enforcement. These fights have been for the right to be heard, to be seen, and to activate change in politics, justice, and civil society. These fights have been for language and for physical space: street names, park circles, rooms of solidarity, schools, parks, and monuments. Wir Sind Hier | We Are Here, a new project by Talya Feldman in collaboration with families of victims, survivors, and initiatives across Germany combating right-wing terror, examines what it means to remember and claim remembrance in a digital space, that which has been – or is still being – fought for in the analog. The voices of those most affected by right-wing violence and their demands for remembrance are made both visible and audible, existing forever in the public space as a digital space – a space of collective mourning and resistance. This platform is designed by Talya Feldman and Tuan Quoc Pham and will be featured by the Kunstverein in Hamburg in January 2022 as part of their KV Digital exhibition series.
Talya Feldman is a time-based media artist from Denver, Colorado.

As a survivor of the racist and antisemitic attack in Halle (Saale) on October 9, 2019, Feldman has received global recognition for her subsequent projects combating right-wing terror on and offline.
