Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Today, it is impossible to imagine the appearance of cities without the monument in public space. Particularly in the course of the 19th century, it developed as a representative public task in its own right, which involved not a few controversies regarding the place of erection, the person depicted, etc. Many monuments became the subject of interpretations and reinterpretations after their time of origin, so that the monuments often say more about their changing contextualisations, while the original motivation for erecting a monument was often forgotten. Recently, various political initiatives have brought monuments back into the public eye. The demolition and reinterpretation of monuments to controversial personalities had become a global issue.
Using selected European examples from 1800 to the present, the course attempts to trace the development of types (event monuments, statues, non-figural monuments, etc.) and the respective contexts of their creation. In doing so, the specific methodological perspectives of art history will also be consciously accentuated, as many disciplines now have a share in the discussion about public monuments (history, social history, cultural studies, monument preservation, etc.).
The Viennese monuments can be visited on site as part of the presentations according to the development of the COVID19 pandemic.
