Film Screening: Point and Line to Plane

7pm

Point and Line to Plane is a meditation on grief and magical thinking by Canadian filmmaker Sofia Bohdanowicz. A young woman extracts meaning from intense loss as she discovers signs and coincidences in her daily life and through encounters with the art of Hilma af Klint and Wassily Kandinsky. The film includes footage shot in the famous Guggenheim exhibition, and a fantasy scene set inside af Klint’s ‘spiral temple’.

Panel Discussion - The Future of Monuments

6pm

In this lively and discursive session panellists including Mark Stocker, Diana Burton, Dr Jacky Bowring, Ellen Anderson and chair Giacomo Lichtner discuss possible futures for public monuments and memorials. 

Today, many want to pull down memorials as expressions of bad politics, especially those memorials that legitimise evil and injustice. What memorials need to go what can stay? Are their 'good' memorials—and who decides? Can we make use of 'bad' memorials? Is the form of the memorial itself now compromised? How do we understand miscellaneous contemporary memorial projects, like Peter Eisenman's Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe in Berlin and Ground Zero in New York, or Weta and Te Papa's The Scale of War and Peter Jackson 'colourising' World War I footage? Do memorials have a role moving forward? What form could future memorials take?
 
Each panellist will present a short talk on a monument to preserve before collectively debating the wider implications of this topic. Chaired by Giacomo Lichtner.

The Future of Monuments

Today, many want to pull down war memorials as expressions of bad politics, especially those memorials that legitimise evil and injustice. Are there 'good' war memorials—and who decides? Can we make use of 'bad' war memorials? How do we understand miscellaneous contemporary war-memorial projects, like Peter Eisenman's Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe in Berlin and Ground Zero in New York, or Weta and Te Papa's The Scale of War and Peter Jackson 'colourising' World War I footage? What form could future memorials take?
