The Altered, the Temporal and the Immaterial : Countermonumental Strategies In Lens-Based Arts

Promoter : Alexander Streitberger / Olivier Servais (UCL)
Co-Promoter : Fabrizio Terranova (erg)
partners : Nathalie Frogneux / Emmanuelle Quertain



Using the function of monuments as a departure point, the doctoral project will reflect on the contemporary evolution of the countermonument in German sculptural histories of the 1980’s and its possible application to lens-based imaging practices. The research and its accompanying artistic production modules propose to explore the question of how one might codify definitive aspects of countermonuments and then proceed to extend their strategies and philosophies into the mediums of photography, film and video.
