Abstract [en]

What concepts can we apply to understand the current wave of new monuments? In this article I suggest labeling them post-monuments, related to the commissioning body’s implied interest in what is commemorated, on the one hand, and the possibility of making amends, on the other. The concept buildson the one suggested by James Young in the early 1990’s “counter-monuments” regarding the German memorial culture of the time. I address how post-monuments can be seen as a future-oriented rectification, repair, and response.

Abstract [en]

This article begins and ends in the question of seeing beyond a mere representation. Drawing on the history of image representations of war, I ask what we can see in images that show very little. The question of seeing stems from Georges Didi-Huberman’s contemplation on the bark from Birkenau and I suggest that his view on seeing could be employed in a wider context. I argue that an alternative view of representations of war and suffering is possible when the motif does not show much since images are far more complex than a superficial deciphering reveals.

Abstract [sv]

 ”Franska tomten” i Göteborg är idag en  intetsägande plats, den fick sitt namn då det var den frihandelszon som Frankrike fick år 1784 i utbyte mot ön St. Barthélemy som sedermera blev en svensk koloni. Göteborgs Internationella Konstbiennal lyfter i två upplagor fram platsen för att fundera kring ett möjligt monument över den svenska kolonialismen. Monumentet skulle bli det första i sitt slag i Sverige.  En central fråga är hur historien representeras och vilka uttryck denna hågkomst tar i det offentliga. Dessa processer kan förstås som ett slags minnesarbete som syftar till att uppmärksamma ett samhälleligt sår. I denna essä detta diskuterar jag hur offentlig hågkomst kan ses i relation till begreppen sårbarhet och sörjbarhet, uppdragsgivarens roll och kulturarv.  Samt hur framtida minnespraktiker kan vara öppna för en variation av estetiska uttryck, röster och erfarenheter och hur dess projekt kan ses som ett slags etiskt svar till det förflutna, i en teoretisk mening likväl som i relation till de samtida protester som Black Lives Matter.

Abstract [en]

In a time when the very last Holocaust witnesses will soon be gone, a possible route for commemoration is to ask what testimony images can give. This book seeks to answer the question of how images can bear witness by examining them as multifaceted entities produced, reproduced, and resituated in conflicting political and historical situations. In three archive-based films by Harun Farocki, Yael Hersonski, and Eyal Sivan, the moving image is reactivated and reinterpreted. Footage produced as internal Nazi propaganda and the video recordings of a politically charged trial in the aftermath of the Holocaust have accrued new meaning. The archival status, context, and conditions for production, and the means of representation, offer a framework for an analysis through which the testimony of images can be understood. 

Abstract [sv]

I tre arkivbaserade filmer av Harun Farocki, Yael Hersonski och Eyal Sivan reaktiveras och omtolkas rörliga bilder från Förintelsen. I en tid då de sista vittnena snart kommer att vara borta inställer sig frågan om vad för slags vittnesmål bilder kan ge för att bevara minnet. I den här avhandlingen undersöks rörliga bilder som komplexa enheter som producerats, reproducerats och resituerats i skilda politiska och historiska situationer.

Råmaterial som producerats som nazistisk propaganda respektive videoinspelningen av en politiskt laddad rättegång i Förintelsens efterspel får en ny mening. Materialens arkivstatus, kontext och produktionsvillkor, liksom deras representation, ger ett ramverk för en analys genom vilken bilders vittnesmål kan förstås.
