Ephemeral Monuments

Workshop, Part of ‘Private/Public’ Festival – Skopje, Macedonia

Opposite to the idea of monuments, seen as artistically created objects, set for a long time at one certain place, with the aim to remind the public of a past event or national personalities, the idea of ephemeral monuments, on the other hand, urges the importance of everyday situations and currently significant events.

Using the method of dérive, an unplanned tour through an urban landscape directed entirely by the feelings evoked in the individuals by their surroundings, the aim of the workshop is to experience different atmosphere and feelings generated by the urban landscape, in contrast to the predictable and monotonous experience of the everyday life.

The event organized by Wiebke Citadine and Elena Veljanovska, Kontrapunkt
