ACTIVISM / MA16 - for a living monument

Performance in the frame of WIENWOCHE, 2021


tangent.COLLABORATIONS teamed up with activists and experts and designed a bureaucratic vision:

The MA16 is an open, multi-perspective and inclusive platform for a living memory practice in Vienna manifesting itself physically and digitally. The goal of this artistic-activist intervention is to open up new spaces of thought and discourse and to connect different current political struggles around monuments and narratives in urban space:

Dear people in Vienna! We would like to invite you to the annual celebration of the "MA16 – Municipal Department for Democratic Historiography and Remembrance Practice in Public Space". "The MA16" was founded exactly one hundred years ago - on the 12th of September 2021. One hundred years of networking and discourse: we abolishes, unveiled, exposed, unlearned, reinvented. Let‘s celebrate together and reflect - what have we already achieved and what are our visions for the future?
