Summary:
Memorials hold a special position in the cultural memory of communities, cultures and nations, and In Memory Of demonstrates this as never before. This extraordinary and moving collection of more than 60 exceptional structures commemorates some of the most destructive events of the 20th and 21st centuries, including war, genocide, massacre, terrorism, famine, and slavery. At the same time, In Memory Of shows that the power to overcome, to survive, even to forgive, is just as impactful and important. Thoughtful essays on the subjects of hope, strength, grief, loss, and fear help to contextualize the projects and address the emotional aspects of memorialization.
"In Memory Of presents more than sixty of the most exceptional contemporary memorials from around the world created by artists, architects, and designers. This extraordinary collection memorializes some of the most terrible and destructive events of the 20th and 21st centuries and yet is a unique and moving reflection on the power of human destruction, redemption--and invention. From Berlin to Bogotá, Montgomery to Mexico City one thing underlies every single memorial: the urge we have to never forget."--back cover.
