OLS 17-18: Articulating History

Who this event is for

  • Everyone


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 reconciliation?

■ 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.
