Dyskursy (nie)pamięci w przestrzeni miasta [Discourses of (Non)Remembrance in Contemporary Urban Spaces]

Abstract [en]

In the article, I discuss the possibilities of deploying multi-semiotic tools of (non)remembrance in contemporary urban spaces. The challenges of such deployment are discussed in the context of sociological and social-theoretical reflection on the urban human condition and the urban space as well as on the role of monuments in traditional pathways of urban remembering. Departing from the latter, I argue for new forms of commemoration and remembrance, especially via the so-called counter-monuments that constitute contemporary artists' discursive response towards hegemonic narratives and practices of memory-making. As an example of counter-monumnetal remembrance in contemporary urban spaces, I analyse Gunter Demnig’s famous Stolpersteine (stumbling-block) installations. Commemorating the Holocaust and placed across several major European cities, the Stolpersteine constitute a very prominent example of counter-monuments that both undermine the long lasting narrations of the urban history as well as propose new, ‘lived’ as well as dialogic format of dealing with the urban’s problematic pasts.
