Topic – Germany’s post-WWII Culture of Memorials and Counter Memorials

This lecture, by Angela Findlay looks at commemoration and Germany, which are highly topical during the current anniversaries of the two World Wars. However, relatively little is known about Germany’s complex post-WWII process of remembrance, which resulted in the fascinating counter memorial movement from the 1980s onwards.
Germany’s very specific situation rendered all traditional concepts of memorials irrelevant and inappropriate. So, German artists looked to create art forms that would respond to questions of apology and atonement for their victims.

Angela, with her Anglo-German roots, artistic background and years of research, is in an ideal position to give insights into Germany’s on-going efforts to find artistic forms for the remembrance of the victims of one of history’s darkest periods.
She is a professional artist and freelance lecturer. She has taught art in prisons and Young Offenders Institutions in Germany and England.
