“MEET UP!": Living Monuments: Commemorative Spaces Between Removal and Re-invention
Living Monuments: Commemorative Spaces Between Removal and Re-invention is an educational program that through artistic interaction with memorial landscapes of Germany and Ukraine seeks to enhance understanding of the politics of remembrances and promote active stance in the composition of public space and creation of more inclusive cities.

Particularly, the program focuses on the phenomenon of monument that attracts the public attention in recent years worldwide and propose to examine it as a responsive to the environments, shifting under ideological pressures, and inviting to the participatory revision. It urges the participants to deconstruct memory spaces of German and Ukrainian cities through different lenses and historical narratives and interact with them in order to experience monuments as living and open to discussion and influence in democratic societies.
With the help of texts, discussions, meetings with experts, and artistic involvement, we invite participants to take advantage of current research on post-colonial city planning, gender theory, discrimination studies and enhance their interdisciplinary competencies and re-approach the planning of commemorative spaces.
The results will be documented in the form of brochure or/and website and presented during our official participation in the der "Tag des offenen Denkmals 2018" in the spaces of neurotitan /Haus Schwarzenberg, which is a monument itself.
The program consists of two group encounters:

Kharkiv - Uzhgorod , Ukraine, 6-14 August
Berlin (including trip to Dessau), Germany, 2-10 September

The call is closed for Ukrainians.
Germans may apply till 5th of July.
