Designing Memory

Can statues be sentenced to death? Can memory be deleted or erased? Should it? Throughout human history, we have shared our identities and created memories through the creation of paintings, sculptures, performances, spaces, and documents from cuneiform tablets to the internet. But what happens to these markers and monuments when our sense of who we are changes?

Join Manhattanville College for Designing Memory, a multimedia, immersive event exploring the relationships among spaces, architecture, monuments, and the construction of memory and identity. Our students, staff, faculty, and alumni will come together to investigate this broad theme from a wide range of perspectives and disciplines.
