RABIN/BRILL HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL LECTURE
Professor James E. Young will present:
“THE STAGES OF MEMORY: REFLECTIONS ON MEMORIAL ART, LOSS, AND THE SPACES BETWEEN”
In this illustrated lecture, Dr. James E. Young, Distinguished University Professor and Founding Director of the Institute for Holocaust, Genocide, and Memory Studies at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, will trace what he calls an “arc of memorial vernacular” from the “Memorial to the Deportees” in Paris, to Maya Lin’s design for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, to German counter-monuments and the Berlin Denkmal, to Michael Arad’s design for the 9/11 Memorial in New York City. Drawing on his experience as a juror on both the Denkmal and 9/11 Memorial design competitions, he will reflect on how they came to be and what they may portend for future national memorials in America, Europe, and Israel.
