ARTICULATING HISTORY: architecture and memory
Friday, 09 February 2018, 18:00 to 19:00
Who this event is for
John Henry Brookes Main Lecture Theatre, John Henry Brookes Building, Headington Campus
Architect and designer Daniel Libeskind will give a talk
as part of Post-War: Commemoration, Reconstruction,
Reconciliation – a Mellon-Sawyer international seminar series
funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation in memory of
John E. Sawyer.
Questions explored in the series include:
■ What roles do cultural practices of commemoration
play in the work of post-war reconstruction and
■ How does commemoration differ across cultures?
■ How can we do commemoration better?
Daniel Libeskind famously said, “To provide meaningful
architecture is not to parody history but to articulate it.”
Expect thought-provoking and challenging ideas.
