Ken Lum & David Brownlee | Monuments and Memory

April 17 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

| Free

The role of monuments and their representation of the past as it extends to the present has recently become a site of discussion, engagement, and conflict. Now that Philadelphia has become the first UNESCO World Heritage city, the meaning of monuments—to make, reflect, frame, and hide our city, its history, and its diversity—has become all the more important. How might we reimagine the monument to be more inclusive, more representative, and more meaningful to us all?

Part of the Wolf Humanities Center’s 2018-19 Forum on Stuff.
