Lecture “What’s in a place? Locating Traces of the Past as a Strategy for Remembering Christoph Mayer’s The Invisible Camp – Audio Walk Gusen” with Dr. Tanja Schult (Art History / Stockholm University)

Christoph Mayer’s The Invisible Camp – Audio Walk Gusen (2007) leads users through three market towns in Upper Austria which during World War II were the sites of concentration camps. Mayer’s artistic sound collage succeeds to visualize a long supressed past in an individual listener’s mind, and establishes an intimate and reflective form of commemoration which leads to critical questioning of neglected or institutionalized practices of commemoration. My talk reflects on how Mayer succeeds to bridge the distance to this past and makes it relevant for us today, and explains in which way his artistic practice can act as a guideline for the creation of other memory works elsewhere – especially in places where most traces of the past were erased and where everyday life goes hand in hand with a will to remember a painful past which happened right there.

City-making and Migrants: Disempowered cities and historical conjuncture

This talk calls for a multiscalar perspective on migrants in city making processes to explicate the multifarous relations between migrants and cities beyond the historically and culturally constructed categories and divides of migration scholarship and public debates. It argues for the benefits of looking at the city-making dynamics of migrants through the lens of cities, which have lost their economic, political or cultural power. It proposes that once we shift our focus to urban regeneration processes and their dispossessive forces that create common conditions of displacement and precarity for urban residents, we might see migrants’ emplacement and commoning dynamics in urban politics, as well as the emerging landscapes of affect in these cities anew. Approaching to migrants and city-making in this way however, urges us to bring the concept of historical conjuncture at the center of our research.

Book Presentation and Conversation with Miles Orvell and Kerstin Schmidt

Americans in the 21st century inhabit a perpetual state of ruins – from abandoned factories and malls to toxic landscapes and the looming threat of climate ruins. Ruins, once symbols of the past, are now symbols of the future. Taking an interdisciplinary perspective, Empire of Ruins discovers a changing pattern of meaning in the way ruins have been perceived and represented, from the 19th century to the present. Orvell explains why Americans at first yearned for the ruins of Europe and the Middle East, discovering gradually in the 19th century that the remains of Native American cultures were as ancient and mysterious as Egypt’s[…]
